Down Syndrome Group of the Ozarks

exists to bring life and wellness to families who are advocating towards a community of inclusion for individuals with Down syndrome.


If you are the new parent of a child with Down syndrome, congratulations!  We want to welcome you to a large and caring family.  There are hundreds of us in the Southwest Missouri area and hundreds of thousands nationwide.

There is no "one size fits all" when it comes to parenting.  However, many of us have been where you are and know some of the twists and turns in the road ahead.  While the journey will bring a variety of challenges, our hope at DSGO is to provide a platform for relationships and resources that will help you navigate your decisions in a way that brings joy to your family.

CONGRATULATIONS on the birth of your new baby!
