A Fact, A Fallacy, A Photo

A Little Moxie is hosting a blog hop for World Down Syndrome Day: 3 for 21.

The instructions are easy:
Post a fact
Post a fallacy
Post a photo

These can be "related to Down syndrome, to the spirit of inclusion, advocacy/awareness."

Fact:  People with Down syndrome are not always happy. They are individuals with a wide range of emotions. Example: Yesterday morning Kayla was not happy with me at all when I said she couldn't wear flip flops to school. This morning she was mad that she couldn't wear gloves (because I have no idea what she did with them) and was refusing to get up off the floor and walk to the bus stop. She has feelings beyond the range of being happy and content with everything in her life.

Fallacy: People with Down syndrome can't learn, or reach a plateau and stop learning. (Hint: Just like everyone else they'll only reach a plateau if not given an opportunity to learn.).

Here is Kayla reviewing what she learned about the Antebellum Period:

And a picture of Kayla:

That "they're all angels" junk drives me nuts! Yes, my son is awesome, but don't make assumptions about the person he is to become.
