World Down Syndrome Awareness Day

An Italian Down Syndrome organization called CoorDown has released an ad in recognition of World Down Syndrome Awareness Day, which is held on March 21. Its tagline, #AssumeICan, is being used by people with Down Syndrome to show that many of the assumptions about their drive and abilities are just that…assumptions.

Negative assumptions are extremely limiting. Instead of assuming limitations, Madison Tevlin, a young woman with Down Syndrome, offers a suggestion: #AssumeThatICan.

You can watch the inspiring ad here. Please note that the ad contains strong language and some mature themes.
