The Down Syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada (DSOSN) is recognized as the leading expert and voice in Nevada for all people affected by Down syndrome. There are hundreds of people living with this disability in our community who look to the DSOSN for support and advice.

The mission of DSOSN is to promote a positive understanding of Down syndrome in the community, and to be a source of support, education and information for individuals and families affected by Down syndrome throughout Southern Nevada.  It is our vision to one day see individuals with Down syndrome accepted throughout the community and respected for their abilities and contributions. 

The DSOSN offers support, direction, services and resources to Southern Nevada families affected by this occurrence. Early intervention and support play a direct role
in the successful integration of these valuable citizens into the family and the community.. Young adults with Down syndrome can become active, participating members of the community, and can enjoy an active and fulfilling life with the assistance of the DSOSN. 

The programs and services we provide include speech, music, dance and physical therapies as well as ife skill and educational seminars, support groups, Hispanic outreach, our Lending Resource Library,the Learning Program,  member socials, the New Parent Program, the Teen and Young Adult Club- the "Cool 21's" and other member benefits.

The DSOSN became incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit
organization  in 1987 and is comprised of families with a child who has Down syndrome, and others who are interested in the effects of Down syndrome on those families.  We are affiliated with the National Down Syndrome Congress, the National Down Syndrome
Society, the National Association for Down Syndrome and Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action.

The DSOSN serves those in the greater Las Vegas, Nevada
area, including the cities of Henderson, North Las Vegas, Boulder City, and other areas of Clark County as well as Pahrump. 

The DSOSN is funded primarily through the generosity of our supporters, which include members of the medical community, the business community, corporations, foundation grants, individual supporters, and the families of the special, vulnerable people we love so much. We do not receive any state or federal funding.

Together, We Can Make A Difference!   Please considering donating a contribution to DSOSN to help support the programs and services we provide to those with Down syndrome in our community.  THANK YOU!
