Happy Down Syndrome Awareness Month!

This year were celebrating by sharing 21 facts about what people with Down syndrome CAN achieve with the right supports. 

FACT 6: People with Down syndrome can write and publish books.

Meet Naomi Lake. 

She is the author of the Harmony the Forgetful Hen  series and just launched her third book Harmony the Forgetful Hen and the T-rex. The inspiration for Naomis three books came from watching her chickens scratching in the yard, and observing their antics and how they interact with their surroundings over many years.

Naomi travels to schools throughout WA to share her books, teaching children to reach for their dreams and believe in themselves.

See Naomis books here: https://harmonyhen.com/
