The Guide to Good Health
A book covering the complete scope of health care and wellness needs for adolescents and adult with Down Syndrome.
Drs. Chicoine and McGuire provide families, caregivers, and medical professionals invaluable insight into what health problems are more common in their patients, and how medical issues can present uniquely in people with Down syndrome. In a clear, empathetic style, they discuss how to promote a healthy lifestyle to prevent problems, and how to recognize health problems early on to ensure appropriate care for the best outcome.
NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
