Summary
"Nearly 1 baby in every 1,000 born in the UK has Down syndrome. It is a genetic condition which causes varying degrees of learning disability and other health problems. This new edition of a highly regarded book for parents of children with Down syndrome covers a number of important new developments in research and clinical practice that has occurred in the field in recent years. Updates include information about several conditions that are known to occur more frequently in individuals with Down syndrome, for example, diabetes, neck dislocation, gastrointestinal malformations, 'glue ear', and thyroid disease. This expanded edition also includes new recommendations regarding routine health checks in line with those of the UK Down Syndrome Medical Interest Group (UKDSMIG). Additionally the book covers new prenatal screening methods which have been developed to identify Downs syndrome during pregnancy."--BOOK JACKET
