World Down Syndrome Day is a great opportunity to raise awareness about what it means to have Down syndrome and how people with Down syndrome play a vital role in our communities. It is an opportunity to highlight their strengths, their achievements, what they have to say, their active involvement in the community, their personal contributions to the community and just who they are!
