We made a special course to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day, March 21, 2018.

The theme of the international celebration was

#WhatIBringToMyCommunity #WDSD18

This special free course offers a short explanation of WDSD and samples from three of our paid courses: For the Love of Music, Let’s Get Ready to Rumble, and Cooking and Nutrition.

Part of the course introduces another project of The Road We’ve Shared – DOWNs Town Mall.

We hope you’ll visit DOWNs Town Mall!
