Resources About Down Syndrome

by Laura Christianson

Down_syndromeFor those interested in adopting a child with Down syndrome, here are a couple of resources. They’re not specifically about adoption, but they provide helpful information about Down syndrome:

K12 Academics: Information page contains an overview, medical research, sociology, notable individuals with Down syndrome, DS in fiction, support services, special education schools, camps, articles, books, videos, magazines & DVDs. This site’s Home page also contains information about a huge variety of other disabilities/disorders.

National Geographic Kids: "I Have Down Syndrome–Know Me Before You Judge Me," by Melissa Riggio as told to Rachel Buchholtz. (A neat story from the perspective of a teenager who has Down syndrome).
