March 21 is celebrated as World Down Syndrome Day! The date for WDSD is the 21st day of the 3rd month, which was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.

The HEART (Helping to Encourage Awareness and Recognition in Theater) Inclusion program at CYT has been welcoming all families in classes, shows and camps since 2000. We have been inspired by the impact that inclusion makes in our families and communities. 

Inclusion promotes hope, builds leadership opportunities in all students and changes perception of disabilities as we educate and create awareness of the abilities in all students. 

We can continue to share the gift of love in our communities by celebrating inclusion and the accomplishments of our students with developmental disabilities. Please contact heartcoordinator@cytkc.org for camp and class information and to register.
