Down Syndrome Awareness Month

October is Down Syndrome Awareness month. Over the years, I have had the pleasure to work with many individuals with Down Syndrome and I have learned so much from them. Among the most important things is the fact that they are more like us than not. One young lady, Rachel, has found a special place in my heart. She and her mother are advocates of inclusion for individuals with Down Syndrome. Check out this video that Rachel was in:

Also, be sure to check out Rachel’s mom’s blog, The Sassy Southern Gal.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Rebecca – thank you for sharing. Just Like You – Down Syndrome was a fabulous experience we were honored to participate it. We’ve been so honored to be a part of so many wonderful projects and to meet so many great people like you on this Down syndrome journey. Thank you for investing in students and families. Thanks for sharing resources and education. Thanks for thinking out of the box and encouraging others to do the same. We miss you! TheSassySouthernGal!
