  • There is also an organization that you can contact to get more information. NORD its National Organization for Rare Disorders. Down Syndrome isn't rare (unfortunately) but they had some really good info for me when my daughter was diagnosed with DiGeorge Syndrome. I'll see if I can find the website for you and post it!

  • FOUND IT!! its: http://www.rarediseases.org
    You click on the rare disease database and enter Down Syndrome. It'll pull up either articles or reports for you or both.
