This is not hard.
We invite you to make a new friend or two.
If you happen upon an individual with Down syndrome, make a friend. Find out if what we say isn’t true.
We’re sure you will discover that whomever you meet will be more like you than different.
Oh, he or she will be in many ways different.
We are individuals. But we’ll bet you will come to know a complete person. One with likes and dislikes. Dreams and ideas about the future.
Next, learn more about people with Down syndrome.
Dig deep. Explore our web site. Learn a bit about our history, mission and the people who make the National Down Syndrome Congress a vital caring organization. Search our web site to explore the topics we have presented and more, such as health care, our Self-Advocate Council and Annual Convention.
