Down’s Syndrome and Supported Living in Birmingham
Life with Down’s syndrome
Although there is no “cure” for Down’s syndrome, there are ways to help children with the condition develop into healthy and fulfilled individuals who are able to achieve the level of independence right for them.
- access to good healthcare, including a range of different specialists
- early intervention programmes to provide support for children and parents
- good parenting skills and an ordinary family life
- education and support groups to provide information and help for parents, friends and families
Improved education and support has led to more opportunities for people with Down’s syndrome. These include being able to leave home, form new relationships, gain employment and lead largely independent lives.
However, it is important to remember each child is different and it is not possible to predict how individuals will develop.
