Adults with Down Syndrome
In Adults with Down Syndrome, written by Siegfried M. Pueschel, experts compare the frequency of psychiatric disorders in adults with Down syndrome and the general population; they also explain the importance of social relationships and inclusion, as well as the history and different levels of advocacy. Adults with Down syndrome comment on daily living, work, friends, and other topics in personal essays. Mark L. Batshaw, M.D., says this book "will appeal both to young adults with Down syndrome who read the successful stories of peers and to professionals who will gain knowledge and insight from the experts."
