Rock Your Socks - Friday, March 20

On Friday, March 20, wear your most colorful, spunky socks in celebration of people with Down syndrome (DS) and the many ways that they make our world brighter.

The official "Rock Your Socks" day is Saturday, March 21.Why rock your socks on 3.21? People with DS have 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, while most people have just 2 copies. Down syndrome can affect how a person looks, speaks and how he or she learns in school. Students with DS may need extra time to do their work or have helpers, but they can learn the same skills as their classmates. When you get to know people with Down syndrome, you will find that they are more like you than they are different! They play on sports teams, are artistic, play instruments and join clubs at school. They want to have fun and make new friends, just like all kids do. Thanks for participating in this worldwide celebration!
