Nov 1 - 7th is National Down Syndrome Awareness Week.
As a mother to a child with Down syndrome, I want you to know that I welcome questions about DS. I would rather you ask than not be certain. There are so many stereotypes out there that are untrue. We do not think of our son as disabled, he is just differently abled than many other children. But, he still loves to do things other children do! Some of his favourites are watching movies, swinging, swimming, being read to, and listening to his iPod. Oh, and teasing his little sister!
