It's Time for WDSD and #jeans4genes!

March 21(3-21) is World Down Syndrome Day!   DSDN would like to encourage not only awareness that Down syndrome exists but promote up-to-date, accurate, real-life information about Down syndrome.

You can advocate and spread awareness in many way! Check out these ideas!

  • Ask local schools, therapy centers and businesses to team up and participate in DSDN's #jeans4genes!  You can share about why your child's genes are a little "extra" unique. 

  • Check out our free downloadable story geared at early childhood through elementary aged students Genes or Jeans?

  • Share your diagnosis story with your local media.  Use this form to create your own letter. You can also view the template.   You can also see some Rockin' Mom examples from World Down Syndrome Day HERE and HERE.  

  • Get involved in your local organization! Participate in a walk, volunteer, fundraise, and give back!  Share DSDN Materials with your local organization.

  • Share DSDN Materials with your physicians and therapists.

  • Share {Unexpected} with new families. 

  • Print out these flyers to share facts about Ds
