"I can climb the highest mountain,
Cross the wildest sea."
--"Man in Motion" (St. Elmo's Fire movie soundtrack)
Wednesday, March 21, 2012 marks the 7th Annual World Down Syndrome Day and the first year the events of WDSD are recognized by the United Nations. The goal of these events is to raise awareness of Down Syndrome and the vital roles people with Downs play in our society. For more info, visit the World Down Syndrome Day website.
While I found plenty on Asperger's and autism, I am not finding tons of in-print fiction titles for teens featuring characters with Downs. If you know some good ones, please recommend them in the comments!
