Re: Adult Down Syndrome

There is a book, "Mental Wellness in Adults With Down Syndrome," by Dr. Chicoine. Dr. Chicoine began and still runs the oldest adult down syndrome health clinic in the U.S., and possibly the world. Unfortunately it is just outside of Chicago, and due to overwhelmig response, they only see residents of Ill.. The book has an invaluable amount of information and can be ordered from ******. It describes common issues to be aware of that impact persons with DS. There is new information since the book was first published, but it still is a wealth of information. My daughter began a decline in early 2008, and we just received a diagnosis last year at Vanderbilt. Her story is on the Down Syndrome and Hashimotos Encephalopathy discussion. Accolades to all of you wonderful caregivers, particularly to the lady who is concerned about her stepson.
