The Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas (DSACT) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to spreading awareness and educating its membership and the general public about all issues associated with Down syndrome. This is accomplished by the development of activities and programs that promote inclusion and acceptance of people with Down syndrome in our community. Formerly the Down Syndrome Support Group of Central Texas, the group was renamed in 2003.

We serve families of children, teens, and adults with Down syndrome as well as interested professionals and an affiliate of the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) and the National Down Syndrome Congress (NDSC).

Committees meet once a month to define, develop, and implement our programs and activities. Program ideas are presented to the Board of Directors at their monthly meetings for approval. The Board is also responsible for the strategic plan and yearly budget. We hope you find our web site and organization helpful to you and your family.
