Milestones features four families, each with a son or daughter with Down syndrome. NDSS invites you to join us as we follow their individual paths and celebrate their milestones.

NDSS thanks filmmaker Erica Hill for helping us fulfill this important "milestone." We also want to extend a special thank you to the Heit, Rosado/Morocho, Orthey and Simons families for welcoming us into their homes and sharing their stories.


Dreams features people with Down syndrome of all ages talking about their aspirations and accomplishments. This inspirational video celebrates the achievements of the Down syndrome community.
