Down syndrome is a genetic condition. It is not an illness or a disease.

People with Down syndrome are not fundamentally different from anyone else. They have the same needs and aspirations in life that we all do, including:

  • a good place to live
  • meaningful employment
  • the opportunity to enjoy the company of friends and family
  • intimacy
  • having a role in our community.

People with Down syndrome need opportunities to reach their full potential, like we all do. When given these opportunities, they become valued and productive members of their families and the community.
