Down Syndrome Resources

As a parent of a child with Down syndrome, you may have many questions. Becoming familiar with Down syndrome is one of the best things you can do. Your child is like every other child in many ways. However, individuals with Down syndrome can be affected by several additional health conditions. On this page, you’ll find resources to help you learn more about the general medical needs of infants, children and adolescents with Down syndrome. These resources will guide you through the age-based medical recommendations for children with Down syndrome so that you can better work with your child’s healthcare provider.
