    Hi Chris,
    I have an elderly friend with a son in his 50s, who has Down's syndrome. He has regressed quite a lot over the last few years, and doesn't seem to enjoy a lot of the things he used to, like playing music. My friend has just bought a Mac computer and was asking me if I knew any suitable apps that he might be able to access. He can read, although his eyesight is poor and he won't wear his glasses. He is also quite deaf now. The Mac has a large screen though and she wondered if she might be able to find something to engage him. Any suggestions?

    Hi EllaB, this is a very difficult question to answer so it would be great if anyone else reading this forum could chip in with suggestions! There is just so much out there…

    Here are some links that may or may not be of interest



    Good luck!
