An Uplifting Syndrome

In light of World Down Syndrome Day, which was 9 days ago, I was preparing to write a work blog about the physical limitations of children with Down Syndrome and what we can do as therapists to help them lead better lives.

Then I stumbled upon this video. Created by an Italian advocacy group.

It gave me goosebumps. Because of the truth spoken by these wonderful children. Because the smiles on their mothers’ faces. It puts things in perspective; not just for families with children with Down Syndrome, but for families with children of all abilities.

“Sometimes, it will be difficult. Very difficult. Almost impossible. But isn’t it like that for all mothers?”
