For People with Down's Syndrome : Living the Way You Want

These leaflets are all about Living the Way You Want. They are in Easy Read.

A note for parents and carers: These booklets are useful tools to help families and their family member with Down’s syndrome think about what they might like to happen in the future. Any support services paid for by the local authority will be based on an assessment of need for the person with Down’s syndrome. This means that whilst the local authority must consider what the assessed person would like, they are within their rights to meet the person’s needs in other cost effective ways.
