Someone recently asked about development on a group page. I dug up this page and want to keep it for future reference as well. It helps you figure out what to expect from children with Down syndrome in comparison to average children. You'll notice, though, the DS version just offers a broader window. Children with Down syndrome may follow the same developmental schedule as other children.
The Access Pass is a free lifetime pass to over 2000 federally owned parks in the USA. For parks that charge admission per vehicle, everyone who is in the vehicle with the Access Pass holder is admitted for free (for individual tours and campsites, there may be discounts, but fees still have to be paid). How cool that National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands offer this special pass to special needs families!
