ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION. 40 years ago, Chesapeake Down Syndrome Parent Group (CDSPG) was dreamed into existence by a group of families in Towson, Maryland. In 2022, we changed our name to better reflect the work we are committed to: providing information and support to individuals with Down syndrome and their families, and the professionals who work with both. No matter what you call us, we are here for the Down syndrome community - for 40 years now, and for the next 40 years to come - and beyond.
