Talk to Me
A personal development manual for women and girls with Down syndrome, and their parents.
Talk to Me has been specifically written to assist parents in preparing their daughters with Down syndrome for adolescence. It contains very explicit sexual language, clear drawings of body parts and explanations of their functions (as one would expect!). When you reach the time to begin to teach your daughter about her body this is the resource you need. The sections for Women and Girls have workbooks on Feelings and Self Esteem to expand vocabulary and understanding, which are suitable for use from ten years old to adult.
NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
