Video sharing just for Down syndrome community

by Ivano Abbadessa from West Info:
Down TV is a video-sharing website dedicated exclusively to people with Down syndrome. It is fast becoming the main web presence for those with this intellectual disability. The portal, created by the Spanish organisation Invest for Child, shares online videos with people with Down syndrome, as well as their parents, caregivers and professionals. It is available in seven languages: English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, Castilian Spanish and German. More than 2,000 videos have been uploaded to the site, addressing topics that range from medicine to sports, music, school and professional occupations. In the ‘work’ section it’s possible to see the experiences of people such as Simone, Sandra, Francesco, Alice, Nicola and many other workers with Down. It’s also possible to listen to the testimonies of business managers – from industries including fashion and hospitality – who decided to invest in the quality and professionalism of people with the condition.
