Small Businesses Owned by Individuals with Down syndrome

NDSS supports self-employment as an employment path for people with Down syndrome. We believe that self-employment can create financial independence and stability, allow an individual to maintain autonomy and flexibility and nurture his or her talents and entrepreneurial spirit. We encourage our local organizations and members to support small businesses in their geographical area that are run by community members with Down syndrome.
