Today Is World Down Syndrome Day!

March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day, and you may have seen in the past people wearing crazy socks to bring attention and get people asking why you are wearing something crazy.

 

It doesn’t just have to be socks, if you have a whacky shirt you like to wear or maybe a whacky hat, that is acceptable as well.

 

If you don’t have any crazy socks you are able to purchase a pair  as well you can get more information on the day HERE!

 

The Moms part of a Facebook group known as “Designer Genes” created for parents who have a child with Down’s Syndrome born in 2013/14. They got together to show the world just how ordinary and fun life with the condition is and how they “Wouldn’t Change a Thing”.

 

The video was originally inspired by Singing Hands – a UK organisation who’s videos have helped many in the group learn Makaton for supporting their children’s communication development. Makaton is designed to help hearing people with learning or communication difficulties using signs, symbols alongside speech.

 

Check out the super cute video…
