Going to School Book – inclusion for children with Downs syndrome

The second book in the Looking Up series published by the Cornwall Down’s Syndrome Group (CDSSG)

We are proud to announce the next book in our series “Going to School”, a pictorial story from our members showing youngsters at primary school. This is a follow on from the “Looking Up” book which depicts a photographic journal from a number of our members from birth to 5.

The first 5k copies of ‘Going To School’ went into the BookStart Treasure Packs of every rising school age child in Cornwall. Since its launch 12th September 2016 word is spreading fast and the books are flying off the shelves.

We are also proud to announce that since November 2016, BOTH books will now routinely being given out to new families in NORTH CAROLINA, USA! We are spreading the message of inclusion across the globe.

The “Looking Up” team have been on radio, tv and social media is spreading the word rapidly with celebrities tweeting photographs of them holding a copy, check out our Instagram page for more info.

@ARCantenatal @sallyephillips @MidwifingAbbie @WeMidwives And @ARCantenatal Continuing Your pregnancy reads like an essay in depression #wemidwives #nipt #antenatalscreening

@ARCantenatal @sallyephillips @MidwifingAbbie @WeMidwives You’ve been misinformed - only a few new leaflets changed. Other pubs. Still heavy on ‘risk’ & ‘problem’

@ARCantenatal @sallyephillips @MidwifingAbbie @WeMidwives ARC literature is desperately negative, nothing remotely positive about #Downsyndrome Need to show reality of living with DS @PositiveaboutDS and allow parents views to be heard at conferences/training events #WeMidwives

@ARCantenatal @sallyephillips @MidwifingAbbie @WeMidwives Could you equally campaign for use of neutral counselling and start with your own booklets @ARCantenatal ?Your handbook contains precisely a page and a half on making your decision, talks about bereavement, termination, losing the healthy baby of your dreams, loss of 'normal baby

@ARCantenatal @MidwifingAbbie @WeMidwives I think you do an excellent job for women wishing to choose termination.

How exciting!

My little boy with DS loves this book. We look at it a lot. I got two copies, and he’s given one to his nursery and the kids love it
