As they get older…

Challenges change as children become teenagers and adults, and so do the opportunities for learning new skills.  We hope you will find ideas here to help enrich the lives of teenagers and adults and foster independence. Individuals with Down syndrome may be interested in the self-advocacy resources, including our Self-Advocate Public Speaking Program, while parents, family members, and those who work with teenagers and adults will find information on a variety of subjects.

If you do not find what you need here, you are welcome to use our resource and referral service.  We have helped families of teenagers and adults with a variety of questions, including health care issues, recreation opportunities, employment and housing resources, legal or financial planning referrals, and government benefits.  If you need assistance, just call us at 630-325-9112.
