My Journal - Week 115 (03Nov11)
I usually spend my spare time (and other time) teaching and educating those who want to know about Down syndrome. With this first week of November, it was very important to me to do that little bit extra in terms of "educating". So, with it being a week of Awareness, I was very flattered when Dr. Meghann Lloyd (Asst. Professor) of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology asked me to present and teach to her 4th year university students taking a course called "Motor Behaviour and Developmental Disabilities" through the Health Sciences Faculty.
I spent 2 hours talking to her 4th year students about everything relating to and about Down syndrome. These students (for all intents and purposes) will be working in the health care industry in one respect or another. Either, working on Doctorates, Nursing, or Clinical Health applications such as Kinesiology.
