The goal of this podcast is to provide professional, quality information, and resources to individuals with Down Syndrome and their families on topics of interest related to Down Syndrome in English and Spanish. Though there are some Down Syndrome Podcasts out there, there aren’t many that cater to the Latino population as well. This podcast will also bring awareness and support to the Down Syndrome Association of South Texas, which is based in San Antonio, but covers all South Texas.
