The Top 5 Truths About Down Syndrome
Another post from mom, but I wanted to share a great post I just read that shares a mother's thoughts on the most important things to know/remember about anyone with Dow Syndrome. Sometimes you can tell by the look on people's faces when they meet Ben that they want to understand what's up with him, but don't know what or how to ask. Then there's those that talk to me about him with him standing there - as if he doesn't understand what they are saying. Ben may not have the verbal skills to express how he feels when people do that, but think about how you would feel. Same emotions, needs and feelings at work. This post is wonderful in it's simplicity and depth of understanding. There are also five ways listed how you can value those with DS in your life.
Pass it on!
