Mission
Down Syndrome Indiana (DSI) is dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals with Down syndrome. Our mission is to serve as a conduit of information, support and advocacy for individuals with Down Syndrome and their families, with promotes growth and inclusion in the community.
Program Description
Down Syndrome Indiana considers a self advocate to be any individual with Down syndrome, or any disability for that matter, that is actively involved in the Down syndrome community, either through DSI or some other avenue. Active involvement not only entails attendance to social events, but also includes volunteering at the DSI office or one of the many community service-oriented events.

Although there is currently no age restriction, self advocates are generally 14 years of age or older for social events and 18 years or older for the business meetings.
