Down Syndrome: Leave No One Behind (Part 2)

Last month, we looked at Down syndrome from the prenatal period to the early years, where interventions are crucial to address potential health issues. In our second part today, we’re addressing the misconceptions that children with Down syndrome can’t receive an education, or can’t grow up to be independent adults.
