118: Shifting the Narrative About Down Syndrome with Heather and Josh Avis

Just in time for Down Syndrome Awareness Month, this week I had the privilege to sit down with two of my very good friends Heather and Josh Avis to discuss their work at The Lucky Few, all about encouraging families to reorient the way the view developmental differences such as Down syndrome. We really dig into the good, the bad, the painful of this work: how to make room for more representation, how to build a counter-narrative to the harmful ones we often see in our community, and how to seek to understand while at the same time, appreciating that you will never fully understand.

You can follow Josh and Heather's adventures over at The Lucky Few website: https://www.heatheravis.com and Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/theluckyfewofficial/
