Down Side Up is a heartfelt and informative blog written by Hayley Goleniowska, mother to two very special girls, one of whom has Down syndrome. Through blogging Hayley is seeking to change the dialogue around Down syndrome and together with her daughter Natty she has already made quite a start! She does this through open posts that provide personal anecdotes alongside access to resources and advice for families welcoming children with Down syndrome – there are tips for medical practitioners and teachers too. The blog explores themes of love, inspiration, support and education and is full of practical ideas on everything from helping visual learners master morning routines to whether or not you want to teach your child to sign. Hayley has been featured in the BBC, the Guardian, The Sunday Times, and ITV and her daughter Natty is one of the first young models with Down syndrome to pioneer inclusive clothing campaigns in the UK. This blog has amassed numerous accolades and it is no surprise why. Easy to access and navigate and a great read – if you’re looking to learn more about Down syndrome this should be one of the first blogs you visit!
