SAVANNAH — The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society is calling for stories and tips from families with children with different abilities.
The LDSS hopes to collect 25 stories that will be published in an e-book to be sold online.
The goal of the project is to create a resource for parents and families to learn from each other’s experiences.
There are no limitations set on the length of the stories submitted, but entries should include the writer’s full name, a photo to accompany the story, information on the child and words of wisdom to other families who have a child with Down syndrome.
Stories ideas might include: the diagnosis of Down syndrome in utero or at birth, what to expect and when, tips on traveling, enrolling in school, immersion, reading, motor skills, health tips, play time and words of encouragement.
All proceeds from e-book sales will benefit the LDSS. Send story submissions to email@example.com by March 31.
