Welcome to our website!

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 & New Albany, IN are the first in the nation to offer comprehensive developmental services.

  • DSL recently has earned the prestigious Gold Certificate of Accreditation from Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action (DSAIA). Down Syndrome of Louisville is the only affiliate in the nation to have met DSAIA’s rigorous organizational and programmatic standards at the gold level. We are understandably proud of these achievements because of what they mean for the individuals who participate in our programs. We will also be doing a ribbon cutting for our new classrooms!
