Down Syndrome

I chose to research down syndrome because it pertains to a genetic disorder, in which we have been discussing in class. This is an important topic to me because it is a condition that effects every one in 700 births. It is a genetic disorder that occurs when a child is born with one extra chromosome, and can affect growth and maturation rate; Also affecting a person's individual appearance. Down syndrome causes lifelong intellectual disability and developmental delays, and can, in some people, effect their health.
