International Down Syndrome Organizations & Clinics

fMany countries have at least one Down syndrome organization to support families and individuals with Down syndrome. However, there is no comprehensive list of such organizations and their services.

The Global Down Syndrome Foundation sourced various lists including those of other Down syndrome organizations. Over time, we expect to limit this list to international Down syndrome organizations that have either a website or a facebook page. In addition, we will organize other pertinent information such as types of services provided.

If you have any questions, comments, or would like to add or edit information regarding an international Down syndrome organization, please contact the Global Down Syndrome Foundation at 303-321-6277 or
