World Down Syndrome Day

This Sunday 21st March, is World Down Syndrome Day. The day was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down Syndrome. Next Monday 22nd March, KTC staff and therapists will be rocking crazy socks to raise funds and awareness for World Down Syndrome Day.

We welcome members to join us with their crazy socks on Monday! 

Our New Love!

We recently discovered an electronic three-sided toothbrush specifically made for autistic children and adults. It is the perfect toothbrush to make self care fast and easy!

This toothbrush ensures that the chore of tooth brushing gets done faster. Since it has 3 sides, it cleans the front, back and biting surface of the teeth at the same time – complete tooth coverage 

You can find the toothbrush here.
