Meet Lydia

I'm pleased to share with you a book review by a beautiful girl named Lydia, who is 9 years old and in 3rd grade. Lydia takes tap and jazz dance class, attends Girl Scouts and is excited basketball will resume in a few weeks.   She loves to swim, go on scary rides, and have sleep overs. Her best friend is Leah.  Oh, and Lydia has Down syndrome --T21. In this blog post Lydia's Success Story, Jane, her mom, explains to us what she feels has been most successful to help her child thrive. I'm excited for us to learn from her!

hi, I am a research student and my thesis topic is " The role of mothers in the rehabilitation of children suffering from Down Syndrome". I was lucky to come across your story and am really inspired by the way you dealt with your daughter. The present state of your daughter is a proof of your hard work.
