Re: Holidaying with Down syndrome teenager

I would suggest you ask the family member that is chaperoning her... my reasoning is, people with Down's personalities vary SO greatly, just like you or I or anyone who is "normal". She may have quirks about some things, she may like or dislike certain foods...you may want to find out if she has any other medical conditions...some do, and there may be diet restrictions, or medications to be aware of. You may ask if she's flown before...could be a lil frightening if it's her first experience.

I bet by the end of the trip...you don't see the "down's" anymore... just the girl!
