Long-time PALS counselor Gabe Cohen produced this excellent piece about families living with Down syndrome. Take a listen:
Gabe says: Last fall I decided to produce an audio documentary about living with Down syndrome. My interest in the subject stemmed from the five amazing years I spent volunteering at Camp PALS. After reading about prenatal testing last October, I realized that a major gap exists between facts and assumptions about disabilities. I wanted my story to display some of the things I learned at Camp PALS—most importantly, that individuals with Down syndrome aren’t so different from anyone else. The two young men I profile in the story reflect just that. Listen to the story, get to know Jack and Sam, and see if you agree.
Gabe Cohen studies journalism at Northwestern University and is a 5-time counselor at Camp PALS
