Adventures in the Mainstream

Author Greg Palmer documents the transition of his son Ned, who has Down syndrome, to adulthood in Adventures in the Mainstream. This book describes Ned's life at school, work, and in relationships in journal format, beginning in June 2002 and ending in September 2004. Emily Perl Kingsley, a writer and former member of the National Down Syndrome Congress Board of Directors, says of Palmer's work, "The joys, disappointments, fears, rewards, challenges, and the overwhelming love and pride - it's all here, beautifully told with humor and passionate authenticity. The book resonated with me on every page!" If you would like to check out this interesting read, visit CeDIR today, or click here to find it at a library near you.
