are the best way to promote inclusion, as they help us perceive the uniqueness of each of us. Many talented and successful athletes with Down Syndrome prove that their disability does not have to be an obstacle to success.
People with Down Syndrome would also like to work, but they don’t always get that opportunity – and that’s a mistake! Everyone should be given the opportunity to work, even if only for a few hours. The performance of a worker with a disability is unlikely to be at the level of other employees, and the employers have to reckon with that. However, people with Down syndrome are some of the most sincere and loyal employees, and their positive impact on the team is much more valuable.
