Down syndrome Awareness Month

October is Down syndrome Awareness Month

It is a month where all over the country, people with Down syndrome are celebrated! Let's show Southwest Missouri how individuals with Down syndrome are 'More Alike Than Different'.

Here are just a couple of things happening this month that you can get involved with.


Support Businesses Who Are Giving Back

Check out the local business or small business owners that are giving back to DSGO a portion of their sales. We love our supports!

Dress Down for Down syndrome

One way businesses can give back this month is having "Dress Down for Down syndrome" day. Have your employees bring a small donation for the privilege to 'dress down' for the day. We have stickers and awareness ribbons they can wear. Contact us if you would like to take part. Here is a couple of business we already know are doing this. 

  • First Home Bank
  • Central Bank of the Ozarks

Schools Educating Students

If you are a school and would like one of our Board of Directors or Executive Director to come out to your school and speak about Down syndrome we would love to educate. Get your students involved by reading books about Down syndrome, writing a letter or card for someone with Down syndrome. Just letting the students understand that individuals with Down syndrome are 'More Alike Than Different'.

Down syndrome Daily Facts

The Down Syndrome Group of the Ozarks wants to share with you some facts or myths about Down syndrome each day this month. Come back everyday to see them, or like us on Facebook. Share these with your friends! If there are any questions that you want answered about Down syndrome please email us at
