Down Syndrome of Louisville, Inc. (DSL) is a non-profit organization founded in 1977 by Mary Carter, an early childhood educator who established the first Early Intervention Education program for children with Down syndrome in Kentucky. Our grassroots organization grew with parent support to incorporate in 1991 to offer services for individuals with Down syndrome of all ages in Southern Indiana and Kentucky. The Down Syndrome of Louisville Lifelong Learning Centers in Louisville, KY & Clarksville, IN are the first in the nation to offer comprehensive developmental services.
