        The Grown-Ups | Lesson Plan Clips

        In this lesson, students will explore the challenges that adults with Down syndrome face as they struggle to establish independent lives and relationships as “grown-ups.” Through the documentary film The Grown-Ups by Maite Alberdi, students will understand what Down syndrome is and confront their own biases about the capabilities of adults who live with the condition.
