Description from video

Cara discusses common Down Syndrome myths and explain how a community of “rockin moms” (moms of kids who “rock” an extra copy of the 21st chromosome) are working to socially construct society’s “next” conversations about DS through critically examining the impact of our language choices. As a communication scholar, Cara has always known that words are powerful. But her scholarship took a personal turn in 2013 when her son, Everett, was born and diagnosed with Down Syndrome. You can find her talking more about her experiences on her blog at mamability.com.
