Welcome to DSGPWNY!

Families. Self-advocates. Friends.

Through DSPG (Down Syndrome Parents Group), we work to raise awareness of Down syndrome while enhancing the lives of people with Down syndrome. The organization’s informational and social events provide a broad range of opportunities for families to support and encourage each other. We provide this Website as a continually expanding resource for those affected by Down syndrome in the Western New York area. Please check back often for event updates and more. And don’t forget to “Like” us on facebook, and follow us on twitter for all of the latest DSPG news and happenings!
