Among the Elite
Jennifer is an assistant special ed teacher in Harwich but despite being a part of the system she can’t find help for her own child.
The 3400 children born with Down Syndrome each year in the U.S. are different physically, socially, and intellectually because they have an extra twenty-first chromosome. A generation ago, these children were routinely institutionalized. A family in Westford made sure their daughter, who has Down Syndrome was included in a mainstream school since kindergarten.
