October is Down Syndrome Awareness month.
A month to raise awareness of others with down syndrome. Not to celebrate their disabilities, but to celebrate their abilities.
Down syndrome plays a big role in our lives, as many of the kiddos who wear our glasses have down syndrome and bonus, many are brand ambassadors for us!
Many parents choose our glasses for their kids with down syndrome because they’re stylish AND offer adjustable temple arms to create that perfect fit for children with low bridges. And boy, do we adore seeing your kiddos in our frames!
Children with down syndrome are changing the world. If you follow any of the above Instagram handles we shared, you will see what a difference they are all making.
Down syndrome kids simply reach goals at a different pace — which is why it’s important not to compare a child with DS against typically developing siblings or even other children with the condition.
Kids with DS have a wide range of abilities, and there’s no way to tell at birth what they will be capable of as they grow up. (And from what we see, they have so many abilities thus far!)
To honor this month, we wanted to raise more awareness of Down Syndrome. Which is why we were so excited to have the pleasure of collaborating with Littlest Warrior.
Littlest Warrior was inspired by a mother’s son after he was born with Down Syndrome. She wanted to make a difference and celebrate Down Syndrome. And she did just that with the cutest tees.
We can’t wait to honor all these cute kiddos and celebrate a beautiful month of awareness.
