Down Syndrome - Parent to Parent Contact
Families of babies newly diagnosed with Down syndrome may not have access to information or encouragement until their babies enroll in early intervention services and may be on wait lists. Parent groups rely on volunteers to put together info packets or welcome baskets and make hospital visits.

Down Syndrome - Treatment Research
Families question the uneven funding of research into treatment and support for Down syndrome compared to investments in prenatal testing. However, we should be encouraged by the comparative funding of treatment research now compared to even a decade ago. It also benefits the general population.

Down Syndrome and Autism Dual Diagnosis
Families whose children with Down syndrome have autism or an autism spectrum disorder can find support and information online for this dual diagnosis

Down Syndrome and Diabetes Dual Diagnosis
Only a few more children with Down syndrome develop insulin dependent diabetes than their mainstream peers. My son developed Type 1 diabetes when he was a slender seven year old, suddenly losing weight. He was diagnosed early because I read about symptoms reading about his sister's T1D classmate.

Down Syndrome and Heart Issues
Children with Down syndrome have a higher incidence of heart problems and some babies require surgery within the first year of life. Due to the great strides in surgical techniques and medical support, children's heart issues can be resolved with a quicker recovery than seems possible to families.

Down Syndrome and Spinal Concerns
Children with Down syndrome have been evaluated for the cervical spine disorder atlantoaxial subluxation for a quarter century. The 1996 evidence based guidelines for doctors are now expanded to refer to cranial-vertibral instability and spinal instabilities including occipito-atlanto deterioration.

Down Syndrome and the Acting Gene
Actors and actresses with Down Syndrome around the world are finding acting jobs in television, movies, and community theater productions

Down Syndrome and the Task of Learning
Children with Down syndrome may have delays or gaps in development due to strategies they find effective to avoid learning, working on or practicing skills. Professor Jennifer Wishart explains insightful research on how children with Down syndrome may sabotage themselves in teaching environments.

Down Syndrome Awareness
Down syndrome information and outreach advocates educate their communities, educators and legislators about issues important to families of individuals who have Down syndrome

Down Syndrome Awareness Events
NDSS Buddy Walks, Step Up for Down Syndrome events, and TwentyWonder in LA, all raise awareness and fund opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome of all ages, throughout the USA. Families of babies and young children can meet one another, and amazing teens and adults breaking barriers.
