Today is World Down Syndrome Day.
World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) , 21st March, is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.
The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.
Down Syndrome usually causes some level of learning disability and here at SLATE we celebrate all abilities.
