That's great. Some of the young people on https://www.the-specials.com/ go to college specifically catered towards this. It's a great series, I wish something like that was available as a choice for everyone with DS or William's.
A Therapist Goes To Therapy (And Gets A Taste Of Her Own Medicine)https://www.npr.org/2019/03/28/707652944/a-therapist-goes-to-therapy-and-gets-a-taste-of-her-own-medicine
At times, the teetering balance between overprotection and encouragement tilted too far on the side of caution, and it was Jane herself who set it right again. One afternoon, as she lay on the couch under a blanket, we peeked in on her and assumed she was sleeping. As we spoke quietly in the kitchen, John suggested that we shouldn’t make her go out for a walk with us, although she had agreed to it earlier. It was one of many moments when neither of us knew what to do. A while later, when I checked again to see if she was awake, she opened her eyes and said, ‘I heard you and dad talking about the walk. I need to be pushed. Don’t give up on me’.
