IT IS A DIFF-ABILITY NOT A DISABILITY

Today, 21 March, is #WorldDownSyndromeDay.


A day to raise public awareness of a condition that affects about 6000 babies born each year.

It is about promoting inclusivity, encouraging advocacy, and raising funds to support those living with the disorder.





And how serendipitous that the official colours for World Down Syndrome Day are blue and yellow. The colours the whole world is currently embracing ๐Ÿค—


Children with Down syndrome are at increased risk of developing compression of the spinal cord called atlantoaxial instability.

They also experience heart problems or issues relating to the Gastrointestinal tract. These conditions may be greatly assisted with chiropractic adjustments.


A regular regime of chiropractic maintenance can free up disruptions in the nervous system, allowing organs to work as they were intended to.


We really have come such a long way in terms of understanding.

Many businesses now see the importance of being inclusive and operating with a social conscience. Not just because it is the right thing to do, but because customers now expect it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป


Even the beauty industry is onboard, as they should be. ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿค—





Why should we miss out on seeing these beautiful souls in ads and on the catwalks?๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป






An amazing social enterprise hotel in the Blue Mountains โ€“ Hotel Etico โ€“ even has a live-in work and training programme. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป


The aim of which is to encourage people with intellectual disabilities who are interested in becoming hospitality professionals. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Participants are trained on-site and work with guests to build the confidence to go out into the world and live a more independent life.


I can only imagine how amazing the service would be, so I for one am keen to experience that. ๐Ÿ˜Š
