World Down Syndrome Day 2022 is coming up on Monday 21st March. Click the link to find out more about what this means and the theme of 'Inclusion' this year, or here for the Down Syndrome Association page where you can tell them what inclusion means to you. Down Syndrome International are hosting webinars throughout the day, click here to find out more and sign up. 

Charity 'Positive about Down Syndrome' have put together some useful resources for schools, including lesson plan ideas for KS1 and KS2. Click here to see the downloadable school resources.

This video aimed at explaining Down Syndrome to children has also been produced in partnership with I Am Me Scotland, Wouldn't Change a Thing and Down's Syndrome Scotland.

There are also some fun odd sock themed colouring pages you can download here.

And if you are looking for a book to help introduce siblings to Down Syndrome, we like this one called 'I Love You Natty'.
