Down Syndrome 101

Everything you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask about Down syndrome! People with Down syndrome are unique individuals with a full range of skills, desires and emotions, just like the rest of us. But what are the facts versus the myths? What do YOU need to know to support a young student with DS or how to welcome your new grandchild? This webinar will cover the basics: biology and diagnosis, physical characteristics, medical conditions, development and cognition and more.
