Count Us In
In this ground breaking volune, Mitchell Levitz (22) and Jason Kingsley (19) share their innermost thoughts, feelings, hopes and dreams, their lifelong friendship and their experiences of growing up with Down syndrome.
Count Us In draws from more than fifty conversations Mitchell and Jason had over the course of three years. With wit, intelligence, candour, and charm, these two young men speak about what matters most in their lives: careers, friendships, school, sex, marriage, politics, finances, and independence. While their concerns echo those of most young people at the cusp of adulthood, they also reflect the special challenges of growing up with a disability. In telling us about themselves in their own words, Mitchell and Jason make a powerful and inspirational statement about the full potential of people with developmental disabilities.
