CL South's Best Buddies program forges friendship, respect

Although she doesn’t see him as often as she’d like, after joining South’s chapter of Best Buddies International and interacting with her peer buddy, Ian, who also has Down syndrome, Benson said she feels closer than ever to her uncle.
“Being around Ian every week, I can understand my uncle’s condition better,” Benson, 18, said.
