Down Syndrome Sites
on the Internet
Compiled by Len Leshin, MD, FAAP
If you do a web search for "Down syndrome" on any of the major search engines, you'll now get thousands of websites in return. When I first started this list, my intention was to make it as comprehensive as I could, and with only a few hundred sites, it used to be easier. With the rapid expansion of the internet over the last three years, however, that goal has become almost impossible. So here are the sites that I feel have the most to offer parents of children with Down syndrome ("DS" for short). If any of these links are incorrect or out of date, please let me know. (To quote Chris Gravell: "this is what happens when you go on leave for 3 weeks - all the links have changed when you get back.") Any omissions or errors are my responsibility alone. Also, please let me know if you have any sites to add.
Many of these sites contain medical information. My linking to such a site does not imply my endorsement of such medical (or other) advice. As always, caveat lector: "let the reader beware."

Frequently Asked Questions
(coming soon) About the author About Down Syndrome Down syndrome is a genetic condition in which there are three 21st chromosomes instead of the usual two. Most people have 46 chromosomes per cell originating from the 23 chromosomes in the mother's egg and 23 in the father's sperm. Not all people with Down syndrome have the same chromosomal arrangement, however. Ninety-five percent of people with Down syndrome (trisomy 21) have 47 chromosomes per cell (they have an extra #21 chromosome). This common type of trisomy 21 is called non-disjunction Three to four percent of people with Down syndrome have Robertsonian Translocation , where the number of chromosomes is normal, but the extra chromosome 21 material is attached with chromosome 14. The remainder have a rare type of Down syndrome in which some of their cells have 46 chromosomes and some have 47 chromosomes. This is called

KidsHealth Kids Kids' Health Problems
In 1866, an English doctor named John Langdon Haydon Down wrote a description of people with a certain type of developmental delay. Because he was the first to write about it, the condition became known as Down syndrome. But Dr. Down didn't know exactly what caused it. Nearly 100 years later, a French geneticist (say: juh- neh -tuh-sist) named Dr. Jerome Lejeune discovered that Down syndrome is caused by a problem with the number of chromosomes (say: kro -meh-sohms) a person has. Chromosomes are thread-like structures in the middle of a cell that carry the genes Keep reading to learn about what Down syndrome is, what causes it, and more. What Is Down Syndrome?
Down syndrome (say: sin -drum), or DS, is one of the most common genetic causes of mental retardation or developmental delay. That means it is caused by a problem with a person's chromosomes, on which the genes that make each person unique are located. People with DS are usually mildly to moderately mentally retarded. Some are developmentally delayed and some are severely retarded. Each person with DS is different. Dr. Down worked in a hospital that had many patients who were mentally challenged. When Dr. Down wrote about the condition, he tried to give a description of what the people looked like. He described people with DS as being born with certain physical traits. However, his description was not completely correct because not every person with DS looks the same.

What is Down Syndrome?
A "syndrome" is a medical condition that is categorized by a multitude of symptoms. Down syndrome, also called Trisomy 21 is the most common cause of mental retardation and malformation in a newborn. It occurs because of the presence of an extra 21st chromosome. Chromosomes are the materials that store people's genetic information. Each person inherits 23 chromosomes from their mother and twenty three chromosomes from their father. Sometimes an accident occurs and one of the parents gives an extra chromosome. When the extra chromosome happens to be chromosome number 21, Down Syndrome occurs. Down Syndrome is not contagious. Symptoms Individuals with Down Syndrom may not experience all of the symtoms. Some of the common symptoms are: decreased muscle tone at birth, asymmetrical or odd-shaped skull, round head with flat area at the back of the head, small skull, slanting eyes, small mouth with protruding tongue (see tongue problems), broad short hands, single crease on the palm, retarded growth and development, delayed mental and social skills (mental retardation) What are the physical Characteristics?

Make HB Ice Cream Sunday a Fun day again in 2004!
HB and Footsteps, Down Syndrome Ireland would like to thank everyone who helped make our first ever HB Ice Cream Sunday Campaign such a success in 2003.
Thanks to you all we raised over
HB Originals is Ireland's favourite ice cream, and is delighted to host this event again this year. HB Originals Ice cream is enjoyed by families and friends every day of the year - rain or shine! Last year, HB provided over 10,000 free blocks of ice cream and invited the public to hold ice cream parties in their homes while making a donation to DSI. This was supported by Pierce Brosnan, who was the face and voice of HB Ice Cream Sunday. In total, 2000 parties were held which raised €300,000 for Down Syndrome Ireland.
Let's make the 2004 HB Ice Cream Sunday an even bigger campaign to raise funds to help us enhance the lives of adults and children with Down syndrome. HB Ice Cream Sunday takes place on Sunday, 16th May 2004

16. Welcoming Babies With Down Syndrome -- English
WELCOMING BABIES WITH down syndrome. We wish you all the best. What is down syndrome?down syndrome is a chromosomal anomaly that occurs in 1.3 per 1000 births.
If you are welcoming a new baby with Down Syndrome into your family, you probably have many questions and concerns, as do your extended family, friends, and neighbors. We have written this information keeping in mind our own diverse experiences when our children were born with DS.
Congratulations on the birth of your baby. We wish you all the best.
What is Down Syndrome?
Down Syndrome is a chromosomal anomaly that occurs in 1.3 per 1000 births. For some unexplained reason, an error in cell development results in 47 chromosomes rather than the usual 46. The extra gene material slightly changes the orderly development of the body and brain. About 5000 babies with Down Syndrome are born in the United States every year. The national population of individuals with Down Syndrome is estimated to be 250,000. About 80% of babies with Down Syndrome are born to mothers under the age of 35. About 1 in 400 babies born to women over 35 have Down Syndrome. People with Down Syndrome are more like typically developing individuals than they are different. There is great diversity within the population in terms of personality, learning styles, intelligence, appearance, compliance, humor, compassion, congeniality, and attitude. Favorite pastimes vary from person to person and range from reading, gardening and travel to baseball, music, and beyond.
