The National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) posted this video this week as part of their My Great Story Video Project, so I wanted to share this great video since I love the technology aspect of it!
Here’s info from the site:
Deon ‘The Miracle’ Child stars Deon Smith. Deon’s mother was told he was born ‘a vegetable.’ His mother found him a teacher who made all the difference to Deon. Today Deon’s love for computers – hardware and software – has demonstrated to all who know him that he is more than his diagnosis.
The National Down Syndrome Society’s (NDSS) My Great Story Video Project features 10 short videos based on submitted stories to the NDSS My Great Story public awareness campaign. The goal of the My Great Story campaign is to ignite a new way of thinking about people with Down syndrome by sharing stories written by and about them.

The My Great Story campaign is the largest NDSS public awareness initiative. The goal of the campaign is to ignite a new way of thinking about people with Down syndrome by sharing stories written by and about them. All are welcome to participate in the campaign, by sharing a story or voting and commenting on the stories already in the collection. There over 550 stories written by self-advocates, their family members, friends, teachers, coworkers, coaches and anyone else who has a positive story to share about someone with Down syndrome.
