Adolescents with DS have many medical conditions that put them at risk for health impairment and disability, and therefore they require frequent monitoring and screening throughout adolescence. Transition from adolescence to adulthood requires much planning and reflection so that the individual with DS can achieve his or her potential and live life to the fullest. Adolescents with DS and their families should be supported and guided by NPs and other health care professionals during this challenging and often difficult time.U.S. Department of Education, 2004.
