Discussion: New TV Series To Highlight Adults with Intellectual Disabilities

Hi group users,

If you are a TV watcher, you probably have your favorite shows as I do.  One of my very favorite programs was "Life Goes On" that aired from 1989-1993.  Corky, one of the main characters, was a teenage boy with Down Syndrome.  Weekly, I could barely wait to find out what successes and challenges  Corky would experience on that episode.

Discussion: Program helps young adults with disabilities become more independent

Hi group members,

I just read an article about a post-secondary student with Down Syndrome from Kalamazoo, Michigan that I think you will find heartwarming.  After you finish reading the article, please post a message if your state has a similar program.  Tell us about it~ Please!
