about ADSA

Arkansas Down Syndrome Association (ADSA) was incorporated in 2004 and is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. ADSA is dedicated to advocating for healthy, inclusive, and productive lives for people with Down syndrome (DS). We serve our DS community by providing free events and services for families across Arkansas—as well as sponsor awareness and educational materials for schools and communities. We are an all-volunteer organization guided by a diverse board of directors made up of medical professionals, members of our local business community and parents of children with DS. Our website,, is the largest and most comprehensive of Arkansas-based websites for families with DS—and includes valuable advocacy, educational, legal, medical, and tax resources.

ADSA is a member of the Global Down Syndrome Foundation and the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS). We are also an affiliate of National Down Syndrome Congress (NDSC) as well as members of Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action (DSAIA) and the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce.
