About the Book
We learn and remember through pictures - across languages and cultural barriers but information is also communicated through “stories”. The combination of pictures and authentic stories to inform the broader community about children and families touched by Down syndrome is both unique and powerful. It is our goal that this book will help build positive attitudes towards individuals with Down syndrome.
Ups and Downs is a registered, non-profit, volunteer-run organization for parents, families and friends of people with Down syndrome. Founded in 1984 by a group of concerned parents, Ups and Downs now provides a wide variety of services and personal involvement opportunities to the Calgary area and Southern Alberta.
