The Grown Ups Conversation Starter:

When Patty suggests to Anita that her tracksuit might not be the sexiest wardrobe choice for a girl coming out of Andrés’ birthday cake, Anita responds, “Who cares, Patty? I like it.” Is Patty’s advice helpful? Should she push Anita to meet a standard set by the neurotypical world? How would you balance trying to help individuals with Down syndrome learn to live in the world with appreciation for their own unique perspective? Should people insist that people with Down syndrome be like everyone else? What can everyone else learn from them?
