Everyone in the Down syndrome community have been busily preparing for our biggest day of the year - World Down Syndrome Day! Lets kick this years celebrations off with a bang - come and check out two video projects that have just been published for #WDSD16. 

#HowDoYouSeeMe
Let's change the way we look at people with Down syndrome, and see them the way they see themselves. As people who want to realise their potential and have meaningful, beautiful lives.
