October is both Down Syndrome Awareness Month and National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)! We recognize the impact that employees with disabilities, including those with Down syndrome, have in organizations across the country. This month, we promote more employment options for people with disabilities as the workforce recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us throughout the month of October and use #NDEAM and #DSWORKS to join the conversation on social media.


NDSS team member, Kayla McKeon, wrote a blog post on the importance of employment and NDEAM.

The Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) has released valuable information on how to promote NDEAM.

The NDSS Employment Program has created a library of resources to support employers and employees with Down syndrome.

NDSS is grateful for the ongoing support of our donors. Support the NDSS Employment Program and donate today!

NDSS is a proud founding member of the CEO Commission for Disability Employment.
