The international charity Down Syndrome Education International (DSE) has taken the enormous elephant named "THE FUTURE" and has tried to turn it into bite-sized pieces for you. Take some time to tour this extensive resource. You will find information about adulthood, adolescence, and childhood. After you get a feel for the generalities, you can focus in on the time period of greatest importance, age 0 to 5 years. We believe DSE will empower you, showing you what YOU can do to help your child, increasing confidence about both the distant and very near future. The beginner may find it useful to review the following materials from DSE. Some of these materials are available for free online and others can be ordered as e-books or printed books, and all orders go to further support this charity's important work.
