AAP Guide for Families of Children with Down Syndrome

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has developed a special guide to help parents and families of children with Down syndrome. This document focuses on medical topics that affect physical health. Other issues can affect social and school success. While these issues may not require doctors or other medical resources, they are still important issues for children with Down syndrome.

Here you can access the neonatal and infant PDFs as well as the document in its entirety.
