In December of 2000, a group of families, several of whom are also members of LLDSS, began to meet informally to conduct athletic activities (e.g., basketball, bowling, etc.) designed to help children with developmental disabilities, including Down syndrome, prepare for the local Special Olympics annual competition.  That group, which now includes over 30 individuals with disabilities, shares the same goal as LLDSS which is to promote awareness, acceptance and inclusion of people with disabilities and to provide them with every opportunity possible.  As both groups are working toward common goals, such group became a part of LLDSS in November of 2005, and conducts its activities as the “Chatham Area Special Athletics,” or CASA.
