Need Inspiration?

In honor of October being Down Syndrome Awareness Month, check out these inspiring articles about disability and the amazing things that people with disabilities are doing!

  • This short article (click HERE) is an amazing example of how an eighteen year old made a huge difference in the lives of many people with disabilities through organizing a Jobs for Life program for the developmentally disabled in his church.
  • Here is a link to a wonderful speech, entitled "Expect, Don't Accept" - the keynote address Paul Daughtery gave at the Remarkable Families Symposium conference in 2009. The whole piece is inspiring, but I personally loved the description of teaching his daughter with Down syndrome to ride a bike - today she can ride 20 miles with her father.
