Voice is the journal of Down Syndrome Australia

It is a high-quality, 32 page print journal published in April, August and December of each year.

We aim to report current best practice and relevant, interesting information relating to Down syndrome and intellectual disability.

We also aim to provide a platform for people with Down syndrome to tell their stories, in their own words. We believe that Voice is the journal of people with Down syndrome, not about them and we actively encourage people with Down syndrome to submit content and will work with you to find the best way to get your message heard.

We do not promote or recommend any therapy, treatment, institution or professional system. We do not espouse any particular political or religious view. Individuals or organisations referred to are not necessarily endorsed by Voice, its editor, or any federal, state or territory organisation. The views expressed in articles and other material in Voice are not necessarily those of Down Syndrome Australia.
