About Language Creates Reality
About the project
Language Creates Reality is a creative collaboration that focuses on the importance of language when talking about Down Syndrome.
Created and designed by Rebecca Hulbert and design studio Bear and Pear, these series of cards offer a fresh new way of sharing and using appropriate language around Down Syndrome.
This project has been supported by the Down’s Syndrome Association who have included it in their Tell It Right information pack. Read the blog here. Rebecca is also the host of ‘Arthur’s Club’ a YouTube channel that uses creative storytelling and Makaton to entertain while encouraging communication skills:
