I'm writing a school project on Downs syndrome

I'm a student in sixth form interested in applying to medicine and I'm doing an EPQ (extended project qualification) on Downs syndrome in today's society as my girlfriend's little brother has the condition. I am just wondering if anyone on this site would like to help me and share their experiences of the condition for my report. I have researched causes and symptoms but am interested in it's impacts on a person's life e.g. socializing, playing sports/hobbies, employment, possibly mental health if you're ok with that. I am also looking into screening if anyone has information about that and their opinion on it. I am yet to look into the care of people with Downs syndrome so if anyone has any information on that it would be appreciated (I have heard that they are treated kindly as children but then outcast as they get older).
Thank you very much for your time!
