Overview - Living with Down Syndrome

An introduction to Down syndrome and the effects of Down syndrome on development.

This publication offers a balanced and person-focused introduction to Down syndrome. The book explains the effects of Down syndrome on development, stressing that while individuals with Down syndrome do have special needs, they are people first, with the same rights and human needs as everyone else in their communities. It includes contributions from adults with Down syndrome, discussing their own lives. (2 x copies in stock)
