People with Down syndrome or ADHD are now living enhanced lives as friends, family members and members of their communities are becoming more educated.
With local events and activities surrounding Down Syndrome or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, October is the perfect month to celebrate unique individuals and make others aware of their abilities and accomplishments.
Down Syndrome is a genetic chromosomal condition where a person is born with 47 chromosomes instead of the usual 46, caused by an error in cell division. Many children with Down Syndrome suffer from health complications beyond the usual childhood illnesses. Approximately 40% of the children have congenital heart defects, in addition to higher incidence of infection, respiratory, vision, and hearing problems.
Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder is brain-based and is related to the regulation of a particular set of brain functions and behaviors, such as attention, concentration, memory, motivation, effort, hyperactivity, and social skills. Approximately 5% of adults have ADHD, which represents more than 11,000,000 people in the US.
There are more resources now than ever before for people living with Down Syndrome or ADHD. With help and support, people can have active, healthy and independent lives.
