Adventures in the Mainstream

Adventures In The Mainstream: Coming Of Age With Down SyndromeI recently finished an excellent book called Adventures In The Mainstream: Coming Of Age With Down Syndrome, which had been recommended to me by another mom with a son who has Down syndrome. Written by a professional author, actor, and playwright named Greg Palmer, whose son was in the process of transitioning from high school to the "real world," the father keeps accounts of everything happening between that last year of high school up until the day the son starts his own job. Written beautifully and with lots of wit (yes, I did laugh outloud throughout the book!) it was such a fun read and helped make me comfortable about the days to come. You can buy this used on amazon for just a couple bucks and it is well worth your read!
