Spotlight Jan 2014

First and foremost, DSAA is an association of parents. DSAA was born from a need for parents to connect in order to navigate a strange, often frustrating, new world and to build a community for their children. Over the years, DSAA parents have worked tirelessly to create a community that not only values their children, but sees their potential. It's important for us to shine a light on our parents, so to start out 2014, we'd like to spotlight our new Advocacy Director, Lisa Newbern, who is carrying on the torch lit back in 1979. She recently had a piece published in the Emory Magazine that gives us a glimpse into her family's experience with Down syndrome. We are proud and lucky to have Lisa, James, Marissa, and Griffin as part of our DSAA family.
