Our ability awareness presentations are a unique way to educate students about Down syndrome and allow them to ask questions. These presentations not only spread awareness in our community, but also allow us all to learn that we are more alike than different. If you would like to know more about our presentations, contact us at elizabeth @dsconnection.org
Ability Awareness Presentation by Elizabeth Lewis - A 15 minute video about creating ability awareness in classrooms by our Director of Education.
Just Like You: This is a wonderful thirteen-minute video about three students with Down syndrome. It is narrated by the students and their typically developing peers. It provides a wonderful introduction to Down syndrome, being friends and the students' wish to be treated "just like you." The video is appropriate for elementary through high school students.
