“The soul is healed by being with children.” Dostoyevsky
I am admittedly unqualified to speak on this topic. I have read countless blogs including my favorite which I have linked above but I have yet to work closely with a student with down syndrome and their family. I have included some links below and I have made learning more (legitimately, through real people) as my personal goal this year. I have always said that parents are the true experts and that is where I will go. I do remember two things that the mom of a little boy with Down Syndrome said at a conference I attended: It is DOWN Syndrome NOT DOWN'S and she reminded us all that her child was NOT happy all the time and that myth was frustrating to her.
