Working with children with downs..

I am a girl scout leader (have been for a few years), this year, I have had a girl join (the younger sister of another one of my girls) and she has downs. Does anyone have an websites that could give me info on how to best adapt different crafts etc. for her. Or any other words of advise would be greatly appreciated. BTW, she is 7 and in the first grade.

Re: Working with children with downs..

I'm a volunteer for the adult Easter Seals, We have many different kinds of people with different kinds of disabilities, I would do the art's and crafts but have someone help her, She will be fine, how many scout leader's do you have? Is there some one who can work with her and help her? Now at Easter seals, I have to help with ceramics, some of these people are in wheel chairs', some of there hands don't work well, so I have to hold there hand and guide there paint brush, we even have this one guy who paints with his feet, you'll find it rewarding and you'll be surprised how some of the girls will want to take her under there wing and help her plus watch over her, it will be a good experience for them.
