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.


This an appropriate topic to use as we just got done discussing Down Syndrome in class. It is becoming more recognized due to the amount of individuals who were born with this genetic element, and how they are not being seen as just a handicapped but attempt to live an average lifestyle. 01-31-2016 10:22pm
