“Gettin’ Down for Down Syndrome”

Thirteen OT students were “gettin’ down” on Saturday when they volunteered their time at the annual “Gettin’ Down for Down Syndrome” Dance hosted by the Arkansas Down Syndrome Association. With a western theme, the students ensured all adults and children had a fun time by engaging them in crafts, games, tattoo art, a selfie station, and of course lots of dancing! Way to go OT – you make us proud with your service and fun-loving spirit!
