Celebrate 30 Years of Down Syndrome Awareness

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, a health observance sponsored by the National Down Syndrome Society.

This year’s observance celebrates 30 years of public awareness efforts by both highlighting the diverse accomplishments of individuals with Down syndrome and challenging stereotypes.

In California, about 1% of children with special health care needs have Down syndrome, according to ’05-’06 data.
