This morning, a darling little girl with Down syndrome, a student in our preschool, stood outside our administrative offices and told us all story after story. Some of them involved dancing, some were action-packed, some were simply explanatory. We didn’t understand most of the words that streamed from this animated little performer, but we knew what she was talking about, because: PERSONALITY. Increasingly visible in the media today, Down syndrome is quickly becoming one of the most instantly recognizable developmental diagnoses in the United States. But how much do we really know about it? This post will help to answer some basic questions about Down syndrome. The more we know, the more we can do to promote the welfare of the community of people affected by this syndrome.
