  • Down’s Upside: A Positive View of Down’s Syndrome
    Eva Snoijink came into contact with Pien, a little girl with Down’s syndrome. She realized that Pien was no different from all the other children she had photographed and that her own preconceived ideas about Down’s Syndrome were actually baseless. She decided to do something about this, and thus the Down’s Upside project was born.
    Eva hopes that Down’s Upside will not just be a pleasure to read and look at but that it will also help give people in our society a realistic impression of Down’s syndrome – so that everyone who sees a child with Down’s syndrome looks beyond the syndrome and learns to value the child behind it.

  • Enable: Special needs planning: Message from Phil Clark: “My sister, Sarah, who has Down syndrome, has impacted my life in so many ways, including what I do professionally. Because my family planned for her abilities, she has had many opportunities to live a life of purpose where she impacts people every day. I believe that your child also has the ability to be impactful and I encourage you to view special needs planning as the vehicle that enables your child to live a life of purpose and impact.”
