Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center

Celebrating World Down Syndrome Day 2020!

On March 21, we will be celebrating World Down Syndrome Day!
 

Why March 21?

The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome. The Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center will be celebrating World Down Syndrome Day with the Random Acts of Kindness Campaign!

Join us at Skyline Diner on 3/21!

The Skyline Diner in Rensselaer is holding a fundraiser to help us celebrate #WDSD2020 on Saturday, March 21! $3.21 of each Skyline Breakfast Special will be donated to the Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center.

You can also support by purchasing a t-shirt, designed by Petros from Skyline Diner! Proceeds from sales also benefit the Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center.

The Skyline Diner is located at
314 Columbia St, Rensselaer, NY 12144

Purchase a shirt and come grab breakfast with us on 3/21 to celebrate #WDSD2020!

Who We Are

The Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center at the Center for Disability Services provides parent-to-parent and professional services and support to individuals with Down syndrome and their families.

We offer support programs, educational services, social events, community events and up-to-date news and resources for families, professionals and individuals. We also work to educate the greater community about Down syndrome and to help individuals become self-advocates.

From even before a child is born, throughout childhood and adolescence and into adulthood, Down Syndrome Aim High is here to help each family and individual achieve their goals. We want every person with Down syndrome to reach their fullest potential and to become fully included members of their communities.
