Already established as the author of the standard work for parents of Down Syndrome children, Cliff Cunningham has now produced the definitive study in this field. Practical and helpful, its sympathetic and understanding approach covers all the questions parents ask about the causes, characteristics and diagnosis of Down Syndrome and includes the difficult issues around prenatal tests. Cliff Cunningham deals with the early reactions and feelings that parents may have and how the family adapt and cope when a child is diagnosed. He explores the mental, motor and social development of children with Down Syndrome, from birth to adulthood. Cliff Cunningham has established a study of over 160 children born with Down Syndrome and followed their progress into adulthood, the largest survey of its type ever carried out.
