Down Syndrome  

This program features Ellen Jane Peterson and Brenda Dubrowski. Together they convey the nature of Down syndrome and explain how it affects the life of someone experiencing it. Their discussions occur in the animal hospital, where Ellen Jane works, and at a restaurant where the two order a meal together. Script material includes a description of characteristics of Down syndrome, its symptoms and effects, and successful management of those effects in daily life. The script additionally explains that Down syndrome impacts each person distinctively and does not prevent personal growth and development.
