About DSAP

Who We Are

Down Syndrome Association of Peel (DSAP) is a grass roots, not for profit organization dedicated to raising awareness around the issues, concerns and challenges that individuals with Down Syndrome face and their respective families.  The lack of easily accessible information, the excessive strain on both time and financial resources along with the emotional upheaval can be quite traumatic for most. We are here to provide support, networking and education to help ease the burden and help families get on with their lives. We can be contacted directly through our website at www.dsap.ca

How We Do It

We are one of the few Down Syndrome groups in Ontario to hold regular, monthly meetings for all our members. The meetings are designed to:

• Introduce guest speakers whose area of expertise may be of particular value to our members
• Allow our members to network with other families
• Discuss issues that our members are facing and if possible offer assistance

We also hold numerous fun activities throughout the year, including “low-sensory Movie Days”, Picnics, Gala Dinners, etc…
