Living with Down Syndrome TV Segment

Hi There,

I’m a news producer on CTV’s new national morning show Your Morning (which launches in one week) and I am working on a segment based on this recent article by author Amy Julia Becker – http://www.vox.com/2016/8/3/12353152/down-syndrome-treatment-parents

We’re hoping to have a panel with both parents of children with Down syndrome as well as an adult who has Down syndrome.  We’re looking to talk about the possibilities for drugs that might improve cognition for people with Down syndrome – and feature both parents who are excited about this possibility, and parents who see no need for such drugs, as well as an opinion from an adult with Down syndrome on what he thinks of these recent studies and how they could affect his/her future.

Thanks! Carolyn

The segment would take place the first week of September. If you would like to reach Carolyn, please contact her at [email protected]ca
