Parents & Caregivers of Teens and Adults

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 available resources to create a future for individuals with Down syndrome.

North Carolina Down Syndrome Alliance partners with national, state, and local agencies to bring valuable information to people with Down syndrome, their families and caregivers, and the community to help navigate life through adulthood.
