While we may love to hug, we know that hugging is not appropriate in all settings. Families and caregivers of adolescents and adults with Down syndrome have expressed that it can be challenging to teach about who and how we can touch. We have created this video on appropriate touch to help people with Down syndrome know how they can touch the people in their lives. A corresponding visual handout can be found at this link.
