Parents & Caregivers of Teens and Adults

Teens and adults with Down syndrome are striving for and reaching their goals and experiencing life similar to that of their peers. Whether graduating from high school, receiving a post-secondary education, working in competitive employment, or living as independently as possible, individuals with Down syndrome are reaching milestones that were previously unimagined.

There is a great deal of planning and use of available resources to create a future for individuals with Down syndrome.

North Carolina Down Syndrome Alliance partners with state and local agencies to bring vaulable information to families and caregivers to help navigate the road to adulthood.
