WDSD Spotlight – Allen Norton

Happy #WorldDownSyndromeDay! Are your sporting your crazy socks today?! Share your crazy sock photos in the comments below! ????????????

Hi everyone, I’m Allen! I am 5 years old and go to school at CAL. I love being in school and have learned so much. I love the Cards, singing and dancing to my favorite music and most recently, tik tok videos with my sisters and older cousins! I’m looking forward to playing t-ball this spring. As a growing 5 year old boy, I can be a little wild for my parents, so we’re all looking forward to warmer weather 🙂 My favorite part of DSL is being a part of the virtual toddler classes and I’ll be doing the bike camp in April!!
