Toys“Я”Us and NDSS Team Up to Celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month!

To celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month, the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) is excited to team up with Toys“Я”Us to host a Twitter Chat on Tuesday, October 14, 2014 at 2:00PM EST

During our Chat, the Toys“Я”Us team will discuss their one of a kind Toy Guide for Differently-Abled Kids, answer holiday gifting questions, as well as offer play-specific insights alongside NDSS Director of Educational Programs, Vanessa Quick. During the live chat, Toys“Я”Us will also be giving away toys that are specifically chosen for children with Down syndrome! 

We encourage you to send in your questions about Down syndrome, gift-giving for children with special needs, the Toy Guide for Differently-Abled Kids, or more before the live chat begins. 

To do this, email your questions and @Twitter handle to NDSS Manager of Communications and Social Media, Kristie Hagen, at [email protected] 

To join the chat on October 14, log into Twitter and tweet at @NDSS and @ToysRUs. Make sure to use #NDSSTRUChat in your tweets! 

We look forward to you joining us to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month by learning more about Down syndrome!
