Reviews

Reviewer: Down Syndrome Australia, an organisation representing people with Down’s Syndrome and their families
Review:

“It’s a question and answer platform designed to connect you directly with communities full of first hand knowledge of Down Syndrome. The app is full of personal stories and experiences from the community, as well as evidence-based resources about Down Syndrome. You can submit your own questions or answers across topics like health, community, education and employment. Ask about Down Syndrome is helping to break down the myths about Down Syndrome. By engaging with the app, you can get the real story about what it’s like to have Down Syndrome. This can help you support the inclusion and participation of people with Down Syndrome in the community.”

“Questions, Answers and Stories: 

The app features people with Down syndrome answering important questions and sharing stories about what supports inclusion, what the barriers are and how these can be addressed. 

Community Inclusion resources: 

The latest resources from Down Syndrome Australia’s Community Inclusion Toolkit are available through the app. This means these resources are now available to view, share, download or print from a handheld device. 

Share your own question, answer or story: 

People can also share their own experiences through the app by submitting a question, answer or a story.”
