Some cool PSAs and a video essay on Ds

I'm preparing a short talk on Down syndrome for Nic's 7th grade class this afternoon and have compiled a few PSAs and a beautiful video essay from a sister to a boy with Ds.

  1. Such an awesome collection. I can't wait to hear how it goes! I hope to do the same thing for our school when the time is right but worry that I might be too "close" to the subject or too emotional and scare the kid away :)

  2. Beautiful information! You are amazing!

  3. You'll have to tell us more details about how presentation went--what kind of questions kids asked etc.
