Reading Comprehension about Down Syndrome Interpretação de texto em inglês sobre síndrome de Down

I HAVE DOWN SYNDROME
Know me before you judge me 

I have Down syndrome. But I'm a normal teenager.

Even though I have Down syndrome, my life is a lot like yours . 
I read books and watch TV. I listen to music with my friends. I'm on the swim team and in chorus at school. And I get along with my sisters - except when they take my CDs without asking! 
Some of my classes are with typical kids, and some are with kids with learning disabilities. I have an aide who goes with me to my harder classes, like Math and Biology. She helps me take notes and gives me tips on how I should study for tests. 
Having Down syndrome is what makes me "me." And I'm proud of who I am. I'm a hard worker, a good person, and I care about my friends.
