At ages nineteen and twenty-two, respectively, Jason Kingsley and Mitchell Levitz shared their innermost thoughts, feelings, hopes, and dreams, their lifelong friendship-and their experiences growing up with Down syndrome. Their frank discussion of what mattered most in their lives-careers, friendships, school, sex, marriage, finances, politics, and independence-earned Count Us In numerous national awards, including the EDI Award from the National Easter Seal Society. More important, their wit, intelligence, candor, and charm made a powerful and inspirational statement about the full potential of people with developmental disabilities, challenging prevailing stereotypes.

Now, thirteen years later, the authors discuss their lives since then-milestones and challenges, developments expected and unexpected-in a new afterword.

PRAISE FOR COUNT US IN

Their parents were told to expect nothing. But Jason Kingsley and Mitchell Levitz were lucky, because their parents didn't listen. They gave their sons that chance to show how far they could go-and they've astounded everyone! Count Us In tells their story." JANE PAULEY
