Abstract
 
Description
"Summary" - This book concerns the law in relation to adults with Down syndrome. It is also particularly relevant to their families, advocates and professionals wanting to understand the broad principles and practices involved. The first part of the book covers major aspects of international law and agreements and is relevant to all countries; particularly those who are signatories to such agreements. The second part is based on Australian practice, which has been chosen because it is also quite similar to legal issues and practices in many other countries, but it can only serve as a guide for people in many countries for most of the concerns are universal. Use is made of vignettes about people with Down syndrome and their families and describes situations and needs which occur in most places. Therefore we hope it will provide useful ideas and suggestions which will help individuals and families plan or seek help legal when it is required. The book illustrates avenues for possible action or response. The information represents ideas and practices, which people in other countries concerned about people with Down syndrome and their families, may find of value, and describes situations which occur in most places and are relevant to people with Down syndrome and their families. - from Amzon
