Increasing Opportunities for Adults with Down Syndrome

Featured ImageNDSS recognizes that after high school, and even postsecondary education, the opportunities for adults with Down syndrome are limited. NDSS has always focused on creating opportunities for adults with Down syndrome through federal legislation, programs, and other key initiatives.

  1. Transition Toward Excellence in Achievement and Mobility (TEAM) Act

    During the 112th Congress, the Transition Toward Excellence in Achievement and Mobility Act (TEAM Act -HR 602,603,604) was introduced as a package of three bills by Reps. Gregg Harper (R-MS) and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) in February 2011. This disability omnibus is intended to improve the transition of youth with significant disabilities into integrated and competitive employment, supported employment, training, career prep and post-secondary education.

  2. Collaboration to Promote Self-Determination

    The Collaboration to Promote Self Determination (CPSD) is a national coalition of fifteen organizations led by NDSS to promote major systemic reform of our nation’s disability laws and programs.
