World Down Syndrome Day

So much to reflect upon and celebrate on World Down Syndrome Day.

The video is: 50 Mums | 50 Kids | 1 Extra Chromosome

A carpool karaoke lip sync video in support of World Down Syndrome Day features 50 mums and their children singing along to Christina Perri”s multi-platinum selling track, “”A Thousand Years””. The mums are all part of a Facebook group known as “”Designer Genes”” created for parents who have a child with Down’s Syndrome born in 2013/14. They got together to show the world just how ordinary and fun life with the condition is and how they “”Wouldn”t Change a Thing””. The video was originally inspired by Singing Hands – a UK organisation who”s videos have helped many in the group learn Makaton for supporting their children’s communication development. Makaton is designed to help hearing people with learning or communication difficulties using signs, symbols alongside speech. With thanks to the artist Christina Perri for her support and Singing Hands for the original concept.
