Next Tuesday 21 March we will be celebrating World Syndrome Day! This is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. The date for WDSD – the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.

As mentioned in our previous post, next Tuesday 21st March, your child can wear socks – mismatched, odd, bright, crazy and/or your favourites!  By participating, we are raising awareness about Down Syndrome.
