Self-Advocate & Sibling Panel 
Join DSIA's Panel Discussion
in Early 2012

DSIA would like to invite 8-10 adult self-advocates and their siblings to share their experiences on growing up, going to school, having relationships, work, health issues, etc. There will also be a Question & Answer session with the audience. Date and time to be determined.

Self-advocates are important members of our community. This is a great way to share your stories and experiences with the community, and for younger families to get to know you and learn from you!

Please contact info@downsyndromeinfo.org by November 30, 2011 if you are interested in being on the panel.
 
I Live with Peter Pan 
written by local mom Missy Vaughn


I Live with Peter Pan is a children's book from the perspective of a young child about life with a brother who has Down syndrome.

"I understand that there are a lot of questions and concerns that come with any diagnosis, especially fear of the unknown. I can only hope and pray that you, your family, and friends are able to experience the love, joy, and the smiles that come with two words that forever changed our lives...Down Syndrome." - Missy Vaughn
