Frequently Asked Questions
(coming soon) About the author About Down Syndrome Down syndrome is a genetic condition in which there are three 21st chromosomes instead of the usual two. Most people have 46 chromosomes per cell originating from the 23 chromosomes in the mother's egg and 23 in the father's sperm. Not all people with Down syndrome have the same chromosomal arrangement, however. Ninety-five percent of people with Down syndrome (trisomy 21) have 47 chromosomes per cell (they have an extra #21 chromosome). This common type of trisomy 21 is called non-disjunction Three to four percent of people with Down syndrome have Robertsonian Translocation , where the number of chromosomes is normal, but the extra chromosome 21 material is attached with chromosome 14. The remainder have a rare type of Down syndrome in which some of their cells have 46 chromosomes and some have 47 chromosomes. This is called

KidsHealth Kids Kids' Health Problems
You have probably seen people who have Down syndrome. They have certain physical features, such as a flatter face, upward slanting eyes, and a somewhat larger tongue. They may have medical problems, too, such as heart defects. And they usually have some mental retardation, which means they may have trouble learning. But despite their challenges, kids with Down syndrome can go to regular schools, make friends, enjoy life, and get jobs when they're older. To understand why Down syndrome happens, you need to understand a little about chromosomes. What's a chromosome? They are thread-like structures within each cell and are made up of genes. Genes provide the information that determines everything about people, from hair color to whether they are girls or boys. Most people have 23 pairs of chromosomes, for a total of 46. But something goes wrong with the chromosomes for a baby with Down syndrome. He or she either has an extra chromosome (47 instead of 46) or one chromosome has an extra part. This extra genetic material causes problems with the way their bodies develop. Health Problems Are Common
Babies with Down syndrome tend to develop more slowly than other babies do. They may start walking later than other babies. About half are born with

The Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore is recruiting children with Down syndrome to participate in a study to identify genetic and environmental factors related to congenital heart disease in Down syndrome. They need children born with Down syndrome and atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD), or AV canal, and children born with Down syndrome and without any structural heart defect for comparisons. You do not need to be near the Baltimore area. For more information, see their announcement here.

More Syndromes Email Mama What is Down Syndrome? A "syndrome" is a medical condition that is categorized by a multitude of symptoms. Down syndrome, also called Trisomy 21 is the most common cause of mental retardation and malformation in a newborn. It occurs because of the presence of an extra 21st chromosome. Chromosomes are the materials that store people's genetic information. Each person inherits 23 chromosomes from their mother and twenty three chromosomes from their father. Sometimes an accident occurs and one of the parents gives an extra chromosome. When the extra chromosome happens to be chromosome number 21, Down Syndrome occurs. Down Syndrome is not contagious. Symptoms Individuals with Down Syndrom may not experience all of the symtoms. Some of the common symptoms are: decreased muscle tone at birth, asymmetrical or odd-shaped skull, round head with flat area at the back of the head, small skull, slanting eyes, small mouth with protruding tongue (see tongue problems), broad short hands, single crease on the palm, retarded growth and development, delayed mental and social skills (mental retardation) What are the physical Characteristics?

Welcome to the Web pages for
Down Syndrome Ireland.
Welcome to the Web pages for Down Syndrome Ireland. I hope you find material on the site interesting and informative.
Down Syndrome Ireland was established in 1971 by a group of parents who wanted to change the way people with Down syndrome were perceived.
Society has come a long way since our founding members set up this wonderful organisation. It is accepted that our children will go to be educated in the same schools as their brothers and sisters. They will catch the same bus and enjoy being part of the whole community.
My daughter Megan has Down syndrome but her status should not be diminished in any way by virtue of an arrangement of her chromosomes. In fact it is as natural to be a person with Down syndrome as it is to be tall or short, stocky or thin, red hair or brown hair, fair skinned or dark skinned. Down Syndrome Ireland has made a difference. It has made a difference to me because Megan is going to the same school her brother and sister went to. Down Syndrome Ireland has made a difference to society because everybody is better off when we do not hide our children away just because they have a disability.
Ireland now has an opportunity to prove itself and move forward with confidence. The Disability Bill has been passed and the Education Bill is also in place. These measures should have a profound effect on our lives. The follow through and commitment of Government to people with disabilities remains to be confirmed. The legislation is in place but the will to move forward has to be demonstrated. I am confident that we are part of the good society and people with Down syndrome will be accepted as naturally as people with brown eyes.

What is Down Syndrome?
Down Syndrome is a chromosomal anomaly that occurs in 1.3 per 1000 births. For some unexplained reason, an error in cell development results in 47 chromosomes rather than the usual 46. The extra gene material slightly changes the orderly development of the body and brain. About 5000 babies with Down Syndrome are born in the United States every year. The national population of individuals with Down Syndrome is estimated to be 250,000. About 80% of babies with Down Syndrome are born to mothers under the age of 35. About 1 in 400 babies born to women over 35 have Down Syndrome. People with Down Syndrome are more like typically developing individuals than they are different. There is great diversity within the population in terms of personality, learning styles, intelligence, appearance, compliance, humor, compassion, congeniality, and attitude. Favorite pastimes vary from person to person and range from reading, gardening and travel to baseball, music, and beyond.

    The Best Worst Brother
    Written by Stephanie Stuve-Bodeen
    Illustrated by Charlotte Fremaux
    Woodbine House
    In this sequel to the popular storybook We’ll Paint the Octopus Red , Isaac is almost three years old and Emma is in elementary school. Emma misses the adoring baby brother Isaac used to be. Now that he’s older, he’s a pain. Emma used to be able to make Isaac laugh. He used to let her hold him without squirming. But no more. Now Isaac spits out his food and knocks down her blocks when Emma tries to play with him. Sometimes his behavior is downright embarrassing. Emma thinks Isaac would be more fun if he’d hurry up and learn some of the sign language she and her mom are trying to teach him. His slower pace is maddening at times! The Best Worst Brother is an endearing and realistic look at how a relationship evolves between a typically developing older sister and her younger brother with a developmental disability. It also shows how sign language can help a child that acquires speech more slowly. As Emma is pleased to discover, Isaac can learn to sign, he just learns when he’s ready.

Welcome to Mosaic Down Syndrome on the Web. My name is Linda Beets, and I am the proud mommy of Karlee, my beautiful angel girl, born on April 27, 1999, and diagnosed with MDS. When my daughter was born, there was absolutely nothing on the Internet about MDS. I was devastated. It was because of this devastation and lack of information that this website now new parents won't ever have to experience what I did (and so many others). I (and many others) personally thank Bree Prive of NJ DesignWorks , for taking such an enthusiastic approach in creating, designing and maintaining this website. I know that this site's contents may appear "general" to many of you, but I wish I had a website such as this to go to last April, the day I found out what my daughter's diagnosis was. I do not feel alone anymore. This site continues to be updated, so do check back frequently. Thank you.

Down Syndrome Sites
on the Internet
Compiled by Len Leshin, MD
If you do a web search for "Down syndrome" on any of the major search engines, you'll now get thousands of websites in return. When I first started this list, my intention was to make it as comprehensive as I could, and with only a few hundred sites, it used to be easier. With the rapid expansion of the internet over the last three years, however, that goal has become almost impossible. So here are the sites that I feel have the most to offer parents of children with Down syndrome ("DS" for short). If any of these links are incorrect or out of date, please let me know. (To quote Chris Gravell: "this is what happens when you go on leave for 3 weeks - all the links have changed when you get back.") Any omissions or errors are my responsibility alone. Also, please let me know if you have any sites to add.
Many of these sites contain medical information. My linking to such a site does not imply my endorsement of such medical (or other) advice. As always, caveat lector: "let the reader beware."
