The DSAA is a founding organization of The Down Syndrome Consortium, which consists of the DSAA, GiGi's Playhouse Atlanta, the National Down Syndrome Congress, the Emory Genetics Clinic, and the Adult Disability Medical Home. These organizations have committed to working together on various initiatives with the goal of bringing one strong voice of advocacy and awareness for Down Syndrome. 

The DSAA provides financial support to the Emory Down Syndrome Clinic in the Department of Human Genetics at Emory University to help maintain a comprehensive clinic that serves children newborn to age seven.

DSAA significantly supports the Adult Disability Medical Home (ADMH) formerly named the Adult Down Syndrome Program, which offers comprehensive clinical and consultative services to adolescents and adults with Down syndrome and their families.

The DSAA also partners with Gigi's Playhouse in Atlanta, an awareness center that provides resources, specialized teaching (i.e. reading, writing, and math tutoring), and support to individuals with Down Syndrome, their families, and the community. All of the programs are free to Gigi's families and are therapeutic in nature.
