This paper was originally delivered as a plenary address at the conference in Chicago in July ofco-sponsored by the National Down Syndrome Society and the National Association for Down Syndrome. It was well received by the audience, and we have received many requests for a written form of the presentation. In this paper I will try to maintain the spirit and humor of the original.
We support, represent and raise awareness to help people with Down syndrome. I write an award-winning blog to gently change perceptions of Down's Syndrome from within hearts over at Downs Side Up. I also do public speaking, article writing, training for doctors, teachers and other professionals and our daughter Natty, 6, is a clothing model and ambassador with Down's Syndrome in her own right.
