Are you familiar with Down's syndrome?
I'm looking to hear from people who are familiar with Down's syndrome and who are willing to give any advice or share any relevant experiences. My little nephew was born with Down's syndrome two months ago. So far, he is healthy and strong and has had no complications at all, however, because he lives in a small island, I'm concerned about the special needs available to him there being limited. I'd like to know what he may be missing out on so that it can maybe be made available to him,
Any information on how to give the best care, any stories you'd like to share, etc, will be much appreciated.
I'd like to raise awareness about the syndrome and promote acceptance. I'm wondering how others have gone about that and hopefully gain inspiration.
Many people don't even know what Down's syndrome is and I'd like to change that.
Starting this conversation is a first step so please feel free to share anything you find relevant and that could help others understand a little more what Down's syndrome is and how it can actually impact people's life in a positive way.
