Today is Spread the Word to End the Word Awareness Day. I invite you to join me in taking the pledge to stop using the R-word and spreading awareness about people with Down syndrome and all types of special needs accurately and respectfully.
I’d also love to encourage you to check out the Preferred Language guide from the National Down Syndrome Society – there is so much wonderful information – change in the right direction only has to start with one person.
For more information on this PSA and the R-word movement, please visit the “Not Acceptable” campaign website.
What do you think of this campaign? I’d love to hear your feedback!
