Re: Brother of an 11 year old girl with down syndrome.. help!

Don't forget, because of the 'Americans with Disabilities Act', schools MUST provide screenings and therapy for all disabled children. This is the law and the school can get in big trouble if they don't provide it. They must also test her hearing, at no charge to your family. If the school seems reluctant or gives you the run-around, contact your local ARC (Assoc. for Retarded Citizens) group and they can put you in contact with the right people.
Hang in there. She's lucky to have you as her brother.
