    Om Count Us In

    Award winner: ';Hearing about Down syndrome directly from these young men has a good deal more impact than reading any guide from a professional.' BooklistThis book is in Mitchell and Jason's own words.... We wanted readers to have a true-to-life sense of their charm, their directness, their humor and warmth, and, yes, their intelligence. At ages nineteen and twenty-two, respectively, Jason Kingsley and Mitchell Levitz shared their innermost thoughts, feelings, hopes, dreamsand their experiences growing up with Down syndrome. Their frank discussion of what mattered most in their livescareers, friendships, school, sex, marriage, finances, politics, and independenceearned Count Us In numerous national awards, including the EDI Award from the National Easter Seal Society. More important, their wit, intelligence, candor, and charm made for a powerful and inspirational statement about the full potential of people with developmental disabilities, challenging prevailing stereotypes. In this edition, with a new afterword, the authors also discuss their lives since then: milestones and challenges, and changes both expected and unexpected. ';Their parents were told to expect nothing. But Jason Kingsley and Mitchell Levitz were lucky, because their parents didn't listen. They gave their sons that chance to show how far they could goand they've astounded everyone!' Jane Pauley ';This single volume will do more to change stereotypes about Down syndrome than any book I have read. These two young men steal our hearts and wash away generations of misconceptions.' Mary L. Coleman, MD, Emeritus, Georgetown University ';An excellent illustration of what it's like to have Down syndrome... Most moving here are the portrayals of strong family relationships.' Publishers Weekly ';Will open eyes and touch the heart.' Library Journal
