As your child with
Down syndrome enters puberty, grooming and hygiene
become increasingly important. Your child may need to learn new habits to stay
well groomed. Cleanliness is very important for proper socialization and
acceptance by peers.
Although it may take extra effort, teach your child how to do these
self-care tasks on his or her own.
