Who We Are

The Down Syndrome Awareness Group (DSAG) was founded in 1983 by an amazingly determined group of parents who wanted not only to improve the lives of their children but to also create a life of inclusion for them. In 2021, a few Baton Rouge families banded together to bring a new meaning to DSAG: Connect and Celebrate!

From providing parent support to promoting a better understanding of Down syndrome, DSAG works to promote positive social conditions that foster the full growth and potential of children and adults with Down syndrome.
