An incredible young man, who loves music and loves playing his ukulele. But that was not always the case. In 2010, when Dudu was younger, he struggled with fine motor skills and it was difficult to find resources and services for him to develop in order to reach his potential.
But his older brother, Leonardo, did not give up on Dudu. Through love, perseverance, and dedication, he sought to understand Down Syndrome and surrounded himself with people who shared the same goal of supporting Dudu's development in an integrative and effective way. And that is how the Mano Down Institute was born: With the intent that many, like Dudu, could have the opportunity to reach their potential.
