Louisville is a fun time. You can go to the movies,  go  bowling and go  out to eat.  Going to  a football game at Papa John’s Stadium to see Louisville is fun when they win.   The UL football team is cool.  It's my favorite.  Lots of people, like my parents go to Derby and I go to the Oaks on the day before Derby. Seeing the Louisville Bats and going to the Slugger Museum is fun too.

IMAGINE- A poem by Mark J. Hublar


By Mark Hublar
Imagine a world with no bullies
It is easy to do
Just include everyone in your kindness
And it will come back to you
Imagine everyone with a real job
It’s not hard to do
People with Disabilities
Can be great employees and can make money too
Imagine everyone with an education
It is easy to do
People with disabilities
Need to learn - so teach us too
Imagine everyone with a social life
It can be done
People with disabilities
should be included
so they can have fun!
Imagine everyone living on our own
It’s easy to see
If it includes you
Then it should include me
Imagine equal rights for everyone
It’s not hard to do
Laws can be changed
And it can begin with you
You may say that I’m a Dreamer
But it is easy to see
Being Included in this world
Is what matters to me

My Life With Down Syndrome
by Beckman

What is Down Syndrome?

Down Syndrome is a condition where a person is born with an extra chromosome.

Down Syndrome is the most common genetic chromosomal disorder and cause of learning disabilities in children.

When I was born, along with having  Down Syndrome, I was born with a hole in my heart.

Down Syndrome Misconceptions
Myth: People with Down Syndrome are always happy.
Truth: People with Down Syndrome have feelings like everyone else.

Myth: Adults with Down Syndrome are like children.
Truth: Adults with Down Syndrome should be treated like adults. They have the same thoughts and feelings as other adults. And enjoy being around other adults.

Myth: People with Down Syndrome can’t be active members of society.
Truth: People with Down Syndrome have jobs, hobbies and take part in other activities. They pursue education. They make meaningful contributions to society. 

My jobs
 I Have worked at a Funeral Home since I was 18 years old.
I open doors and greet people during visitations.
I like being able to care for other people.

I also work at Clothes Mentor.
I organize clothes by color and size.
I enjoy this job because I like clothes and interacting with my co-workers.


I am a sophomore at Jefferson Community and Technical College, in a program called College Connection.
I’ve learned about how to apply for jobs, how to do interviews and proper study habits. This year, I’m taking classes on acting, art, music and science. 

I enjoy singing and have taken part in the Down Syndrome of Louisville Talent Show for the past four years.
I’m a big fan of musicals, and in the talent show, I sung songs from “Les Miserables,” “Aladdin” and “Hamilton.”
I also like to dance. I danced to “Beauty and  the Beast.”

I enjoy hanging out with my boyfriend, Lucas, and my friends.

I also like reading books, being in plays, playing kickball, bowling and going to the movies.

Book Club- by Grant

We are on our 4th book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.  In the past, we have read the Wicked script, the Alice in Wonderland script and The BFG. I love to read the books and especially the scripts, because they are easy to follow, and I like to hear people play their parts.  I like to share what I learn with my friends.  We share ideas, brainstorm, laugh, talk, eat and have a good time.  My friends and I love to pick each other's brains about the book.
