The Down Syndrome Association of Acadiana provides support to persons with Down syndrome, their families, and friends. We do this through networking, promotion of positive public awareness, information sharing, and advocacy. Our website furthers our mission by providing ways for you to learn more and get involved.

Understanding Down syndrome

We refer to our members as a person who has or with Down syndrome.  Not a Down's person or Down syndrome kid because Down syndrome does not define who they are!
