My mom, the special education aficionado, found the website www.disabilityscoop.com. I've signed up for email updates. This is my little plug for an informational website.
This website is great. It has links to tons of articles. Do you watch Glee? The actress who plays Becky has Ds and has been picked from Obama to be a part of his Disability Committee. There is also an article about Monica and David who are married and have Ds. And about life in college for someone with Ds. So many great heartwarming stories to make you remember that someone with Ds is just like anyone else.
The exciting news is that the UN is trying to officially recognize World Down Syndrome Day starting in 2012. World Down Syndrome Day is March 21 or 3.21. This day is created to raise awareness of Down Syndrome.
