How do I support
People with Down syndrome
Down syndrome has nothing to do with race, nationality, socioeconomic status, religion, or anything a mother did during her pregnancy. The severity of its symptoms can be mild to completely debilitating, depending on the individual. Some people with the disorder lead full independent lives. Still, there are many more who aren’t so fortunate and need our help.
syndrome is the most common chromosomal disorder, yet it receives the least amount of research dollars. Because of this, there is still much we don’t know about D.S. More research will help us understand how to better care for people with D.S., and might even help us find treatments and cures for diseases that afflict people without Down syndrome.
