We would love to thank all of our supporters who help make Down Syndrome Advocates in Action a resource for families! As many of you know we are a 100% volunteer run organization. This means any donations made to DSAA NE goes to work much faster and farther within the Nebraska Down syndrome community. Here is a graphic that shows just a few ways your support impacts families in Nebraska who have a loved one with Down syndrome.
We hope to have official Buddy Walks in both Lincoln and Kearney this spring. In these uncertain times, we are not sure yet if they will be in-person, virtual or some combination, but we can't let the time go by without doing some sort of celebrations. Keep on the look out for details coming soon!
While most of us in the Down syndrome community will agree that our loved one has changed our lives for the better, it does not mean it is all sunshine and roses. Sometimes we deal with challenging behaviors that come from communication delays, slower processing speeds, and anxiety. The good news is that there are some simple solutions that can make a huge difference.
We love supporting the Nebraska Down syndrome community! Help us share positive messages this Down syndrome awareness month. We can't wait to see what you share. #dsam2020 #dsaapositive
