Dakota's Pride is a heartwarming documentary about a father's search for the truth about Down Syndrome.
27 January 2011 | by girardsagSee all my reviews

Dakota's Pride is a heartwarming documentary about a father's search for the truth about Down Syndrome. Tough questions are posed to and answered by a noted Harvard Physician, and parents of children with Down Syndrome. The answers are surprising and inspiring. In addition to being informative, this documentary celebrates the successes that have been and can be achieved by individuals with Down Syndrome.

Dakota's Pride has been/will be aired on PBS and is a must see for anyone. This family friendly director's cut has 45 minutes of bonus track footage and ten extra minutes of running time. "Informative and inspiring. . . It's wonderful to know that parents can be so involved, educated, and determined to reach out and make a difference. These people are giving many others hope. 'Dakota's Pride' is a truly inspiring tale! This is a feel-good documentary." Universal Film Festival universalfilmfestival.com "Dakota's Pride is a unique film that shows a side to Down Syndrome that is rarely featured, and that is the hope and success that these individuals and their families can experience in life." Valerie M.B. VanDerSluis Programming Director KTWU PBS ktwu.washburn.edu "This DVD is recommended family entertainment by The Dove Foundation."

Dove Worldview: A very informative documentary that talks to families, experts, and children of Down Syndrome. Learn the reactions of the parents, the changes in concepts that have been made through the years, and realities over the myths. Travel this road as parents, teachers, and pastors network together to tell the true facts and feelings that surround these special children that just happen to have Down Syndrome. This is definitely a very educational and inspirational story. Dove awards the Dove "Family-Approved" Seal to "Dakota's Pride".

National Down Syndrome Congress, February 2008, By Julie Anderson This is a good video for those who are wondering what it means to be the parent of a new baby with Down syndrome. It was created by a father who had the question himself and set out to find the answer. There are interviews with both parents and professionals who paint a positive portrait of what life is like when there's an extra chromosome in the picture. I particularly like how he was ready to search the world to find out the positives, but ended up finding all of the proof that he needed quite close to home. Viewers will learn new information about DS, including that there is much to celebrate.
