World Down Syndrome Day falls on Sunday March 21 this year, but we want to encourage classrooms and groups to celebrate WDSD on the days leading up to it!

What can you do?
Every year we encourage people with Down syndrome, families, advocates, professionals and organisations to observe WDSD with your own activities.
We want to see this again, more than ever in 2021!
