Overview

Dr. Mark Selikowitz, a consultant paediatrician, has drawn on his extensive experience with children with Down syndrome to write this sympathetic and authoritative book, widely regarded as the definitive guide for parents. In this new edition, he looks at the many new opportunities that have appeared over the past few years in the educational, social, and employment spheres for people with Down syndrome. These have been accompanied by favorable changes in community attitudes. A particularly encouraging development is the greater attention paid to the wishes of people with Down syndrome. The book offers advice and reassurance to these people and provides an essential guide to their parents and the many health workers who come in contact with Down syndrome children and adults.
