The NDSS legislative agenda spans the life experience of individuals with Down syndrome from birth through adulthood and ranges in issue from health care to asset development. These priorities have been shaped by self-advocates, families, affiliate leaders and others under the direction of the NDSS Board of Directors. A briefing document of all of NDSS’ current federal legislative priorities is available at this link.

“I started running four years ago to quit smoking. Now, I run to show my son, Fritz, that you can do anything you set your mind to, so long as you are willing to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Team NDSS has been a great way for me to help NDSS continue their important work for our kiddos and family members. Wearing NDSS gear at local races here in Arkansas has given me a chance to talk to other runners, dispel myths about Down syndrome and promote the work of NDSS.”— Chris Attig
