In our presentation we will describe the process of writing the book: Down Syndrom -The first Years. We will talk about the process from the very tiny start to the real book that is now in the hands of many parents and professionals. Christina decided to write the book that she wished she had, when Bjørg was born. A book that would spread hope, knowledge and give tools to parents and professionals. Nearly 30 professionals and 200 parents from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and the Faroe Islands contributed with topics, points of views and knowledge.

A dream came true writing this book – we will share that dream with you.
