31 for 21: Day 24 Avery reading

Avery has learned 15 popcorn words so far  this year. Her is a video of her saying her words with the flash cards… I would say she is doing pretty good for only being in school for ONE month!!!!!!!  She started the school year not knowing any…

I couldn’t be more prouder!!!Smile

Wow, GREAT job, Avery!!!! Fantastic!!! Reading is the most amazing, wonderful, exciting thing. I thought it would never happen for Samantha, but she showed us from the beginning that books were her best friends. There are so many amazing reading programs available for kids with Ds, how can we go wrong? :-)

I LOVE when people post videos!! Especially when it is things like this, a child older than Russell reading or writing...Nothing helps ease my mind about Russell's future more than actually being able to see first hand what other children with Ds are accomplishing! Thank you for sharing this :)

I recently tried to reach you via email, but didn't hear back. Knowing how it is with so many emails coming into everyone's Inbox nowadays, I thought that maybe posting a comment would be a quicker and much better way to connect.

I am working with a very special lady, Dr. Julia Kinder, who has an 8 year old daughter with Down syndrome. We're trying to promote A PETITION REGARDING DOWN SYNDROME and I thought you would be a great resource to help spread the word.

PETITION - https://www.change.org/petitions/medical-school-faculty-require-complete-education-on-down-syndrome-for-3rd-year-medical-students

We're also having all sorts of activities on her website Celebrating Down syndrome - http://www.juliakinder.com/DownSyndromeCelebration/

We also published a national Press Release about this a few weeks ago, but we need the active Down syndrome community to get involved - http://www.prweb.com/releases/Dr-Julia-Kinder/Down-Syndrome-Celebration/prweb10028318.htm

Please let me know if you would help by posting some of this to your interested audience: colin@juliakinder.com

Your time and efforts are so important as we try to change the stereotypes surrounding Down syndrome - dispelling the myths - and as we try to CHANGE THE WAY IN WHICH THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY PROVIDES RESOURCES TO NEW PARENTS. We can only achieve these goals with your help!

Thank you so much!
