Inspirational Model with Down Syndrome

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Ryan Langston has everything a casting director would want in a child model: charisma, a hip haircut and a knockout smile. This 6-year-old also has Down syndrome -- and it is that fact that has daytime talk shows, international newspapers and news networks all wanting to tell Ryan's story.
His appearance in a Nordstrom catalog this summer, and a Target ad this month created the kind of buzz marketing directors dream of -- because of what the ads do not do. They don't emphasize or point out that Ryan has special needs. He's just a good looking kid in an ad, appearing alongside other good looking kids about the same age.
