Teens & Adult Matters
If you are the parent, sibling or family member of a teen or adult son or daughter with Down Syndrome, we hope that you find the information on these pages helpful. NADS has been serving children and adults with Down Syndrome since 1960 and we greatly intensified our support and services to adults in 1992 with the opening of the Adult Down Syndrome Center (ADSC) in Park Ridge, IL. NADS continues to work collaboratively with the ADSC to serve adults with Down syndrome.
