What is speech language therapy and how does it help children with Down syndrome? We chatted to speech language therapist Shannon Hennig about the importance of communication, the lack of funding for those who need it and the relief provided by our partner charity, UpsideDowns.
When UpsideDowns told us that your 1% donations have helped introduce a new 100% subsidy option for families in need, we had to learn more. Here's the exciting update!
The Simonlehner family are one of eleven families recently taken under the wing of our partner charity UpsideDowns. Their wee boy Edi, age five, will receive funded speech language therapy for years and years to come, in part thanks to those 1% donors' who give 1% of their income. We sat down with Edi and the family to learn what that really means.
