Down Syndrome Documentary Coming To PBS
[Source: Disability Scoop]
Deep questions about independence — or lack thereof — for adults with Down syndrome are at the center of a new film that’s set to make its television debut.
“The Grown-Ups” will air next month as part of PBS’s POV series.
The documentary focuses on the experiences of a group of middle-aged adults with Down syndrome in Chile who attend a center where they go to school, participate in regular therapy sessions and staff a catering business.
