Rock Your Socks

On Wednesday, March 21st 2018, the Down Syndrome Association of DE will be joining other schools and organizations around the world in celebrating WORLD DOWN SYNDROME DAY.

Please join our Facebook Group: Rock Your Socks- World Down Syndrome Day

Together we will create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome in our school, community and around the world. 3/21, World Down Syndrome Day, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which leads to Down Syndrome.

The DSA of DE will again be supplying socks for your school or organization to distribute so that your group can show your support on 3/21. To order socks: please fill out the ORDER FORM (click here) before February 1st.  Socks will be distributed to your group’s representative  on March 3rd in Georgetown OR on March 4th in Newark . DSA of DE will supply the socks to your group to distribute for a price of $1.00 per pair and will collect payment after the event.

We will also have Rock Your Sock T-shirts available for purchase- youth and adult sizes available. They can be shipped or picked up.  Click here to order T-Shirts.

If you work with students within an educational or learning setting and would like to view our Disability Awareness Toolkit please click HERE. This toolkit includes videos, age specific lesson plans and other resources to promote disability awareness within your classroom.

One of our moms has also created lesson plans, available for purchase, which we highly recommend, view them HERE.
