Just Like You, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, makes a 13 minute film that answer questions about Down Syndrome by allowing the stars of the film to speak out on behalf of all people with Down syndrome to breakdown stereotypes and open doors.  We have received hundreds of comments like the one below from people across the country.  "This is the very best...(film)...I've EVER seen explaining Down syndrome to ANYONE - it is appropriate to show children as young as Pre-k, Elementary, Middle School, High School - and yes even those ignorant adults we all know and sometimes love (some are friends, some are merely acquaintances, some are FAMILY members) . . . . THEY ALL NEED TO WATCH THIS...!! It is made by three kids with DS and three of their typically developing friends - they cover the entire gamut of topics that need to be covered - from muscle tone, to "we are not always happy," to "we can be good friends," to sometimes I need extra help at school, to "don't use the R-Word," to "its ok to stick up for your friend with DS" - just to name a few. Parents ask me all the time if I know of a good book to read to their child's class that explains Down syndrome . . . here is my new advice - FORGET THE BOOK!!!!! Insist that this...(film)...be shown to your child's class or your child's grade - heck, your child's entire school needs to see..!!! Now, take 15 minutes out of your life right now to watch this incredible...(film)...!!"
