Today is World Down Syndrome Day

The twenty-first day of the third month was chosen because Down syndrome is associated with 3 copies of chromosome 21.

As of 2019, 51 thousand people with Down syndrome live in Russia, including 25 thousand children.

Like any of us, people with Down syndrome have strengths and weaknesses, habits and preferences, hobbies and interests. Our partner, “Stronger with CSS” grant program winner, Downside Up Charity foundation has shared very valuable information on how best to establish harmonious business and friendly relations with these people.

Strengths of people with Down syndrome:

  • Sociability, friendliness
  • Diligence
  • Ability to perform routine work for a long time
