MISSION
The Down Syndrome Association of Northwest Indiana is a non-profit organization of families and interested persons working to improve the quality of life for those individuals having Down syndrome.

VISION
Our vision is to foster understanding, acceptance and inclusion of persons with Down syndrome which will give them the greatest opportunities to realize their aspirations and enjoy independent and productive lives.
Program Description
Packets providing helpful information, resources, up-to-date facts, and encouragement are available for families of newborns with Down syndrome. Information packets are also available for students researching the most commonly occurring disability.

We provide a quarterly newsletter to our members keeping them up-to-date on our activities, the latest information on Down syndrome and educational opportunities such as conferences and seminars from other geographical areas that may be of benefit to them.

We host FREE weekly one-on-one tutoring and Speech Groups as well as; educational family-based activities for all members, such as our annual Family Holiday Party, Family Picnic, Moms’ Night Out, Awards Banquet, Fall Fest and Valentine's Party to help foster family fellowship and provide parents and siblings the opportunity to share concerns, difficulties, and triumphs in an informal non-threatening setting.

We provide the most current educational and medical resource materials to members, educators, service providers and medical professionals through a lending library conveniently located in our office.

Our website provides local and national information and links to other helpful organizations.
