Adult Series - Community and independent living for adults with Down syndrome

Discusses community and independent living for adults with Down syndrome.

This book discusses community and independent living for adults with Down syndrome. In many ways it follows on and links to a previous book in this series, Families of adults with Down syndrome. It describes the ways adults have moved from family home to community residential living, and in so doing discusses the development of an independent home life integrated with the local community. We have provided examples of people, who vary in their ability levels, along with the successes and challenges they have faced. This book provides some suggestions for consideration by parents and professionals. It also looks at the professional training required for frontline personnel, along with the types of behaviours that parents might look for in considering an individual's placement in the community.

NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
