row will we cope? Why did it happen to us? How will we tell our other children? What help is available to us? Will our child be able to work, to marry, or have children? These are just a few questions frequently asked by parents that are discussed in this positive, practical, and comprehensive guide. Dr. Mark Selikowitz, a consultant paediatrician, has drawn on his extensive experience of children with Down syndrome to write this sympathetic and authoritative book, and to dispel the many false notions about the syndrome. Most children are now brought up at home and this book gives theirparents the information they need to make choices about treatment, education, and general welfare. In this new edition, he looks at the many new developments that have taken place over the past few years in educational, social, and employment opportunities for people with Down syndrome as well as changes in community attitudes. A particularly encouraging development is the greater attentionpaid to the wishes of people with Down syndrome, and this book offers advice and reassurance to these people as well as providing an essential guide to their parents and the many health workers who have contact with Down syndrome children and adults.
