As part of our mission to better support, educate, and advocate, we are launching DSL Pop-Up Programming in order to serve those areas that are not as close to our main campus. Early Childhood Education and School-Age programming are coming to a location near YOU!
You can see all of our program categories here. We also have many additional Family Support Services in addition to these programs. Our Lifelong Learning Model shows many of the programs and services that we offer throughout the lifespan in one quick glance.

Pop-Up Programming Success
With the generous support of the NASCAR Foundation, Down Syndrome of Louisville began providing Pop-Up Programming in areas around Louisville in February and it has been a positive experience for all involved. Many of our members cannot make it to our campus for classes due to distance- but they have welcomed having opportunities that they can attend close to home!
