Down Syndrome Kerry's goal is to help people with Down syndrome make their own futures as bright and independent as possible by providing them with education, support and friendship every step of the way.
We have over 200 members of all ages throughout the county. DSI Kerry provides speech therapy and occupational therapy to supplement inadequate state provision. We provide training and advice to professionals. We organise social and sporting events for members as well as seasonal employment for young people with our Deenach Lodge Cafe in Killarney.
Down Syndrome Kerry also provides education for its members through the Latch On Programme. Literacy & Technology Hands On (Latch-On) is two-year literacy programme for adults with intellectual disability.
