East Texas Down Syndrome Group
The East Texas Down Syndrome Group brings together people with Down syndrome and people who love them. Our purpose is to: Provide support to people with Down syndrome and their families; Educate and inform our community about people with Down syndrome and the gifts and blessings they bring; Promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome in all aspects of society. To accomplish this mission we provide information, education, and support to self-advocates and families in East Texas. We believe that as parents, we are the primary advocates for our children and in so doing we can educate our families, friends, schools, and community at large of the inherent qualities and contributions that individuals with Down syndrome possess.
