Disability - Down’s syndrome - Alexandra's story
« on: December 12, 2012, 07:04:53 PM »
We meet Alexandra, a triplet who unlike her other two sisters has Down's syndrome.
We see how Alexandra's sisters, Eleanor and Felicia, play a big part in her life, helping her with everyday things such as dressing and being around whenever she needs them.
It is not Alexandra herself who talks on the clip but her sisters, with Eleanor playing the major role.
It is less of a personal account but more a perception based on filial attachment.
The sisters talk about the things that Alexandra likes and dislikes.
Alexandra enjoys the same activities as her sisters such as Brownies, swimming and gymnastics.
Alexandra also attends an education group without her sisters to help her learning.
Friendship is important to Alexandra,
and Logan who sits next to her in class feels that Alexandra is better at Maths than he is
which shows that each person has particular strengths.
