Hi my name is Ben and I have been learning about Down Sydrome. Here is just a little starter information about down syndrome. Down Syndrome (trisomy 21) is a geneticly obtained disease that happens at birth. Down Sydrome happens because of an extra 21st chromosome. The symptoms of down syndrome can vary from person to person and can be very mild or severe. Children with Down Syndrome very often have slow physical development. They also have delayed mental and social development.
