News, Educational Articles & Videos

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month. This article points out all the lessons we can learn from individuals with Down syndrome.

Decades of research has proven that inclusive education substantially increases academic performance and the rate of employment for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Interestingly, research suggests the benefits of inclusion extend to typically developing classmates. The presence of a classmate with an intellectual disability fosters empathy, tolerance and patience. These virtues are fundamental to developing “emotional intelligence,” a concept revered by educators, parenting gurus and business leaders alike.

  • Improve your community by joining our cause. You'd be surprised at what a huge difference a little bit of your time can make.
