Down Syndrome Group of the Ozarks
Down syndrome (DS) also known as trisomy 21, occurs when an individual has a 3rd copy of chromosome 21. One in every 700 babies in the U.S. is born with DS, making it the most common chromosomal condition. In 1983, the average life expectancy of a person with Down syndrome was a mere 25 years old. Today, it is 60.
Down Syndrome Group of the Ozarks exists to bring life and wellness to families who are advocating towards a community of inclusion for individuals with Down syndrome. Started by a group of mothers with a desire to unite local DS families, DSGO provides programming and resources that serve our families; and educate the community on the amazing ways individuals with Down syndrome can contribute to society.
