Welcome to the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Richmond
We’re glad you’re here. Whether you’re a parent, an advocate, or an individual with DS, you’ll find resources, information, and open arms.
What The DSAGR Stands For
We advocate for awareness and understanding by educating our members and community about DS, and offering education practices to help our members navigate the school years – from IEPs to behavior and everything in between.
We believe individuals with Down syndrome are valuable members of our community and in whom all things are possible. With full opportunities and community support, individuals with DS will achieve great things.
We boast a membership of hundreds of families; a community within our community that celebrates and embraces raising children with DS. We listen, we learn, and we have fun. Together, we help our members every step of the journey.
Thank you so much for bringing your voice and expertise and for being so willing to work with and share your knowledge with the teachers.
I appreciate your insight, as well, in helping to change the mind sight from “can’t do” to ” can do”.
The 5th Annual "From PossAbilites to Practical Applications" Disability Education Conference will be held on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at The Hilton Richmond Hotel and Spa/Short Pump. More information here. [...]
