To raise awareness for World Down Syndrome Day this year (21 March 2019) #wdsd19
, we decided to sing a version of the brilliant Abba Super Trouper song and learn the accompanying Makaton. Scarlett is the lead singer, with accompaniments from Viggo and Ebba and some backing singing from us parents!
We thought the words in the song lent themselves (with a little adaptation) to describing someone with Down’s Syndrome, and our life, with them a part of it. See the lyrics below the video in YouTube with the accompanying Makaton translation. We name the song “Super Trooper” instead of Super Trouper (as we think the word “Trooper” sums up Viggo and others with Down’s Syndrome quite well!). These incredible people stand out from the crowd by being strong, brave, determined and resilient.....by bringing an extraordinary amount of love, sunshine, excitement, happiness and laughter into so many situations and into our lives in general. Being around someone with these amazing qualities gives you a different outlook and level of perspective. We learn so much from our Super Troopers.
Anything that can be done to smooth the path for our fabulous folk with Down’s Syndrome will help them lead rewarding, enjoyable and capable lives, whether it be: specialist support provided to help them to reach their potential; the attitude, understanding and patience of others in respect of them; and the opportunities that are made available for them to demonstrate their full abilities....#LeaveNoOneBehind
