If I could go back…

An inspiring series of films contributed by parents all over the world who have children with intellectual disabilities. They talk honestly about their feelings at the time of diagnosis and tell us what advice they wish they could have given to their former selves.

We will be regularly adding new films. If you would like to send in your own film please contact us. It’s a chance to reflect on your own experiences and to pass on your valuable insight to new parents who are just commencing their own journey.

A big thank you to everyone who has contributed so far! We have received videos from parents in England, Wales, USA, Australia, Sweden, Nepal, France, Spain & Brazil. Special thanks must go to The Down Syndrome Diary for their support and contributions as well as to our local friends at T21 Brighton & Hove.
