What is Down Syndrome Awareness Month?  

Down Syndrome Awareness Month is a chance to spread awareness, advocacy, and inclusion throughout the community. During the month of October, celebrate individuals with Down syndrome and make people aware of their abilities and accomplishments.


How Can I Celebrate?


Ask your school or business to host a Dress Down for Down Syndrome Day

Looking for a great way for you and your fellow staff or students to get involved in the community?    The Down Syndrome Association of Memphis and the Mid-South invites your school or business to participate in Dress Down for Down Syndrome in honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month.  Your school or business will pick any day in October and offer the staff and/or students the opportunity to have jeans day, hat day, pajama day, etc. by making a donation to the Down Syndrome Association.   Upon request, DSAM will provide posters and stickers for you.  DSAM can come to your school or business to speak upon request.  Click HERE for more information and for a Dress Down Information and Commitment Letter to send to your school or business!
