My Life with down syndrome
My name is Riley @smiley_riley2014. My Mummy and Daddy have taken me everywhere. I regularly go horse riding, swimming, indoor soft play, I've been to the zoo, the seafront, theme parks and I also enjoy kicking a ball around with Daddy. I attend a performing arts school and I love to dance to music with my Mummy. I know loads and loads of Makaton signs to help me communicate, which is good because in September I started Primary school and I love my new teachers and all my new classmates. I have lots of friends which means I get to go to loads of parties. This is good because I like cake. I have even done some modeling. I'm Happy, I'm Cheeky, I'm Smiley but I can also be sad, or I can be a little grumpy when I'm tired or hungry. I have Down Syndrome. Can you tell? No, neither can I. I may have Down syndrome, but Down syndrome doesn't have me. I can do anything.
