Hello!
Down’s syndrome is a chromosomal disorder seen in approximately 1 in 800 live births. Children with Down’s syndrome have mild to moderate learning disabilities, developmental delays, characteristic facial features; low muscle tone etc.There may be associated gastrointestinal problems and heart defects. The spectrum of Down’s syndrome can range from mild to severe. It is caused by the inheritance of three chromosomes 21 so also called trisomy 21. High maternal age is a risk factor for having a child with Down’s syndrome. Such children need special education programs, early intervention, physical therapy, occupational therapy and screening for other associated disorders etc.  Most adults with Down’s syndrome live independent lifes.They are successful in relations and work. Discuss your concerns with your doctor and if you are in doubt seeking second opinion will help. Do write to us again with more queries. Hope you find this information useful.
Best luck!
