Caring for Children with Down Syndrome
About Down Syndrome
Down syndrome is a chromosomal condition that is often diagnosed before birth. In addition to developmental delays, intellectual disabilities, speech problems, and hearing loss, children with Down syndrome may experience other medical conditions, including heart abnormalities, gastrointestinal problems, pulmonary problems, spinal conditions, neurological concerns, and problems with their gross motor skills.
