About Our Charity
The Down Syndrome Association of Simcoe County serves the geographical area known as Simcoe County - north of Toronto in Southern Ontario.
To children and young adults living with Down syndrome, and their families, we provide:
• bursaries for therapies, recreation programs, and young adult independence needs
• bursaries for members to attend the provincial conference and national conference
• subsidies for members to participate in therapy and recreation programs such as speech, sign language, music, yoga, drumming, occupational therapy, art, and bowling.
• various events including karaoke, Pumpkinfest, Christmas parties, cooking classes, a pottery class, and a summer camp.
We also publish newsletters and offer an extensive lending library. In addition we provide information packages for hospitals and clinics in the area.
