Inequitable Access to Grief Support for Children, Youth, and Teens with Down Syndrome

People with Down Syndrome are valued members of our communities. However, they are often marginalized in accessibility to supportive social services. In this episode Nancy Howson, Community Relations Director for the Down Syndrome Society of York Region, joins us to share her insights and experiences on how to break down barriers for people living with Down Syndrome. We discuss the inequitable access to grief support for children, youth and teens living with Down Syndrome, and how more inclusive and informed models could be implemented. Nancy also graciously shares her knowledge on how people with Down Syndrome may grieve or express their state of bereavement, and how grief support can be individualized and tailored to meet their unique needs.
