: Hello, My sister and I are coming to the parents with Down Syndrome for advice. My sister is a first grade teacher with no prior special ed experience, but guess what she is going to have a child with Downs in her classroom. Please give any advice you can on where she can find material to read, what parents with Downs children want their children to experience in school, and any other advice you would like to share. We need your help!!!! We only have three monthes to plan for next year and we want to make next year a great school year for every student in her classroom. Thanks Cindy

Cindy,
I have a daughter who is going to be 4yrs this month. She has been in a "regular" preschool for the last year and will continue to this following year. I can only speak for myself, but, I expect any teacher to treat my daughter like a human being and child wanting to learn. She loves school very much and loves to learn. The only problem I have with her pre-school teacher is she treats her like a baby...she's not a baby anymore but because she doesn't have the language her twin brother has that's how everyone treats her.
Good luck.
kathy
