New Directions Down Syndrome Association

Who we are

New Directions is here to help families learn about Down syndrome, provide direction to resources, and offer networking opportunities with other families. For many, connecting with other parents who “know what it is like,” can help.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

New Directions strives to enhance the lives of individuals with Down syndrome throughout their lifespan by providing support, information and education to those individuals, their families, and professionals.

The 2023 Buddy Walk is on Sept. 30th at Pasley Park!
