Face Up to Down Syndrome
Please know that this is a safe place. While we offer information about Down syndrome and guidelines for the best language to use, the most offensive thing you can say to someone with Down syndrome, or someone in their life, is nothing at all.

About World Down Syndrome Day
World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is celebrated on 3/21 to signify the third copy of the 21st chromosome present in individuals with Down syndrome.
Event proceeds benefit educational programs for individuals with Down syndrome (Ds). Educational programs in the greater Charlotte area are helping to support educators and enable students with Ds to live up to their full potential.
