Viral ad pushes back against misconceptions about Down syndrome

An ad released ahead of World Down Syndrome Day is sparking conversation and challenging assumptions about people with the condition. The ad stars Canadian actor and model Madison Tevlin and was produced by the advocacy group Coordown in partnership with the National Down Syndrome Society and other organizations. The conclusion: assumptions, both negative and positive, can become reality. KTVU's Heather Holmes and Alex Savidge are joined by Madison Tevlin and CEO of the National Down Syndrome Society Kandi Pickard for how they hope the ad will help shape public perception of Down syndrome.
