  • I don't have a child with Down's Syndrome, but I have worked with a lot of people that have Downs Syndrome. Have you looked into any programs for her? Lots of places have social networking programs for teens with disabilities.

  • There are work training programs, social programs, special olympics, residential programs, etc.
    You need to recognize that she will probably outlive you and needs to be able to function in the world without her parents.
