Adults With Down Syndrome Show You What ‘Special’ Needs Truly Are—and It’s BRILLIANT

Today, March 21st, is World Down Syndrome Day. Why today? Well, because people with Down syndrome have 3 copies of their 21st chromosome –so 3/21 is the perfect day to celebrate the lives of these extraordinary people. In the ad above, actress Lauren Potter leads a crew of funny and talented adults who talk about what kind of needs people with Down syndrome have, and whether or not they’re actually THAT “special.”

Potter and friends point out that people with Down syndrome are more like “typical” people than they are different, and I won’t give you any more spoilers, because they way they make their point is pretty darn HILARIOUS and super-smart. Give it a watch!

Hard to argue with that….am I right ?
