Articles

Each issue of Voice has a theme so that we can fully explore issues important to people with Down syndrome including current research, new innovations, and book and product reviews.

While families make up the bulk of our readership, the content is important and relevant to the wider community, particularly community groups, health and education professionals, and potential employers.

A main focus of Voice is to provide opportunities for people with Down syndrome to tell their own stories in their own way. We publish stories in a variety of formats including hand-written submissions, interviews, dictations and video submissions on our website. If you have something to say, we will help you say it.

Voice gives people with Down syndrome the chance to tell us about things that are important to them.

Each person can do this in a way that suits them, such as writing by hand, drawing, photos or video. We can help people if they need help.
