About Down's Syndrome : Alex


My name is Alex.

I live with my family. I like dance and drama and my favourite sport is cricket.

I work at Specsavers. I help with the banking and post office duties and I make sure the display glasses are clean.

I’m good at computers and I love helping people. At Specsavers, I meet and greet the customers and update their appointments on the computer.

I love working in Specsavers. Everyone is so kind and helpful to me. I have learnt lots of new things to do.

I wear a smart uniform & a name badge. I feel smart and an important man.
