Poll: October Is Down Syndrome Awareness Month

Down syndrome is a condition in which an individual is born with an extra chromosome. This additional genetic material alters the course of development and causes the characteristics associated with Down syndrome, including, "[an] experience [of] cognitive delays, but the effect is usually mild to moderate and is not indicative of the many strengths and talents that each individual possesses."

This month advocates and individuals who have Down syndrome will be working extra hard to ensure human rights for all people. For more information about Down syndrome and the Awareness Month, please check out the National Down Syndrome Society website at
