Transcript

KPBS is kicking off a week-long series on Down Syndrome. The topic was suggested to us by one of our listeners.

We'll hear from parents, discover available resources, find out why advocacy is so important and look at clinical trials underway right here in San Diego.

Today we're joined by San Diego parent Colette Cosky who learned her eight-month-old son Dexter had Downs Syndrome, right after his birth.

GUEST:

Colette Cosky, San Diego mother of two, runs Downright Awesome blog.

Colette Cosky is a contributing producer on this KPBS series
