October is Down Syndrome Awareness and Acceptance Month

Monday, October 1, 2018

October is Down syndrome awareness month.  MCDSIG thinks that many of us are ready to move beyond awareness….we want to gain ACCEPTANCE of our loved ones with Down syndrome!  Let’s educate our community about the abilities of our loved ones, let’s urge businesses to hire adults with Down syndrome, let’s get our schools to #choosetoinclude and to presume competence in our children, and let’s help kids understand more about Down syndrome so we can eliminate barriers to friendship.  We have 31 days to make some changes!  Let’s do it!
