LDSA subsidizes a number of fantastic programs for individuals with Down syndrome that are offered here in London & the surrounding areas.
LOCAL SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES
Many of our members enjoy several types of sports at differing levels, with great success. The LDSA has created, and also has members involved in many different sports associations. We have highlighted a few associations below, but this is by no means all that is available. If you know of a particular association that specializes in or accommodates people with special needs, please feel free to contact us and we would be happy to promote them here as well. People with Down syndrome may be, but are not always, limited in certain physical activities. It is advisable that you consult a medical professional before pursuing sports activities.
