Service description:
Downs Side Up started as a way for blogger Hayley to share her family's story and resources with other parents with a child with Down's syndrome. The blog quickly took on a life of its own, and is now the hub for many other branches such as publishing, advocacy, public speaking, media work, training and so on.

The motivation, however, remains the same, to allow people to see what Down's syndrome really means today. How we are all different, yet share so very much in common, regardless of our abilities.

Downs Side Up have published a book called 'I Love You Natty' which is a sibling’s look at Down’s syndrome for children.
