About Us
To Participate
To Donate
Current Funding
Parent Info Links Our Mission: To conduct and disseminate basic scientific research to better understand the complexity of individuals with Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and spina bifida and to utilize this knowledge to design and test innovative clinical services We describe complexity as the dynamic interactions of biological and psychological factors that contribute to the overall quality of the individual's motor behavior. As we learn more about the relevant factors that may alter behavior, this information is used to design and test interventions to improve the quality of functioning in people with various disabilities, including Down syndrome and cerebral palsy. Our goal is to share this information with scientists, parents, and professionals around the world through presentations and publications of current research , discussion of review papers , and organization of seminars. As part of the University of Michigan and the Division of Kinesiology, we create interdisciplinary and collaborative learning opportunities for researchers at the undergraduate through post-doctoral levels. The ultimate outcome will be a significant increase in the number of people conducting research and scholarship related to individuals with various pediatric disabilities, hopefully leading to meaningful development of movement, play, and sport skills. Our center does not provide direct clinical services to children but does conduct clinical trials to test the functional outcomes of new innovative programs. Our mission also includes speaking to parent support groups on topics related to our research findings and to disseminate our new knowledge to professionals in physical therapy and occupational therapy. Many undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Michigan are invited to participate in many of our on-going research projects. Faculty members and graduate students at the center are involved in national and international collaborative research with other researchers who are studying cognitive and social development in children with disabilities. Our mission at the center is to have a positive impact on the whole child, recognizing that the child's physical functioning influences many other areas of their life including their families.

Health Care for Adults With Down Syndrome
Down syndrome occurs in about one in 1,000 live births and affects about 250,000 families in the United States. The syndrome is a congenital condition caused by an extra chromosome. It is characterized by cognitive delays (or mental retardation) and certain facial features. Adults who have Down syndrome can present diagnostic and treatment challenges. Patients with Down syndrome are more prone to certain health conditions, but may have difficulty expressing their symptoms and following treatment directions. Furthermore, symptoms may be incorrectly attributed to the condition of Down syndrome. An overall, holistic approach forms the basis of good health care for adults with Down syndrome. Adults with Down syndrome have the same basic health care needs as typically developed people and should receive the same age-appropriate preventive care as unaffected persons. Immunization schedules are the same and screening for high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer and dental disease is no different. However, people with Down syndrome are likely to have a number of conditions, such as diabetes, thyroid disease, depression, hearing loss, obsessive-compulsive disorder, sleep apnea, compression of the spine in the neck area, and Alzheimer's disease.

What is Down syndrome?
Down syndrome, also known as Trisomy 21, is the single most common genetic pattern of malformation in man. Most text books quote the incidence of Down syndrome to be between one in 700 to 800 live births. In 1866, John Langdon Haydon Down described the physical features and associated medical problems that have come to be known as Down syndrome. In the 1930s, physicians established a relationship between advanced maternal age and Down syndrome. The chromosomal, or genetic, basis of Down syndrome was not established until 1959. A normal human cell contains 23 pairs of chromosomes which carry all of a person's genetic information. Due to several possible abnormal mechanisms of cell reproduction, patients with Down syndrome have an extra (third) copy of the 21st chromosome. Thus, Down syndrome is also called Trisomy 21. Advanced maternal age is associated with a high incidence of Trisomy 21, but even women of typical child bearing age can have affected babies.

Down syndrome
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
A child with down syndrome Down syndrome encompasses a number of genetic disorders , of which trisomy 21 (a nondisjunction ) is the most representative, causing highly variable degrees of learning difficulties as well as physical disabilities . It is named for John Langdon-Down , the British doctor who first described it in the late 19th century
Incidence of Down syndrome is estimated at 1 per 660 births, making it the most common chromosomal abnormality. The maternal age effect influences the risk of conceiving a baby with the syndrome. At age 20 to 24, it is 1/1490, while at age 40 it is 1/106, and at age 49 is 1/11. (Source: Hook EB. Rates of chromosomal abnormalities at different maternal ages. Obstet Gynecol Genetic counseling and genetic testing such as amniocentesis are usually offered for families who may be at increased risk to have a child with Down syndrome. Many children with Down syndrome are born to women under the age of 35 because testing is not usually offered to women under the age of 35. Women over 35 are often given an amniocentisis and 9 out of 10 choose to abort the affected fetus.

New Attitudes Enhance Care of Adults with Down Syndrome
Along with the good news that the life expectancy of people with Down syndrome has more than doubled since the 1950s comes a unique set of health care management challenges. On average, infants born with Down syndrome now live into their mid-fifties. Some medical conditions occur more commonly in adults with Down syndrome, but their response to those conditions can make diagnosis and treatment more difficult. David S. Smith, MD , is a proponent of a modern-day attitude and holistic practices on the part of physicians, family members and others who interact with people with Down syndrome. "Improved health care is probably the biggest reason for the increased life expectancy," said Dr. Smith, Medical Director of the Down Syndrome Clinic of Wisconsin. "There's a much greater willingness now to say that we're going to take care of their other medical conditions, not just shove them off and let them die," said Dr. Smith. "For example, heart conditions and serious gastrointestinal problems used to be ignored in people with Down syndrome."
