Dear Signing Time Families,

When we created Signing Time, I hoped it would make a difference in the lives of children who are deaf. I wanted families, neighbors and entire communities to embrace American Sign Language so that my daughter, Leah, and children like her would be welcomed, involved and included.

I had no idea that Signing Time would make such a big difference in the lives of so many children who have Down syndrome!

My fall weekends are routinely filled with Down Syndrome Buddy Walk performances. This year, I invite you to attend your local Buddy Walk, it’s an experience you’ll never get over!

Today, Friday, March 21st, is World Down Syndrome Day! Please join us in celebrating our friends, family members and loved ones who have Down syndrome.
