What Will You Learn?
The Down's Syndrome Awareness Course provides an overview of the characteristics and causes of Down’s syndrome, together with practical, up-to-date information about the challenges people with this diagnosis face throughout their lives. Individuals with this condition can lead fuller, healthier lives than was previously possible. This is partly thanks to the increased awareness and support structures that you will learn about in the course.
The Down’s Syndrome Awareness Course outlines the physical and mental characteristics of the condition and explains the causes, risk factors, medical complications that can occur, and how it is diagnosed.
You’ll learn how to support someone with Down’s syndrome throughout their lives, as you explore how their needs change as they grow and develop. The course guides you through this, step-by-step, starting with the sometimes-controversial issue of prenatal testing for the condition, which explains the test and the ethical issues that surround it.
In addition to the usual needs of babies and young children, those with Down’s syndrome face specific issues, such as problems with digestion and temperature regulation. There is also a degree of learning disability, so babies with Down’s syndrome will experience developmental delays. You’ll learn how parents can overcome their anxieties and raise healthy, happy children.
Early intervention and support are key to help a child with Down’s syndrome to reach their full potential. Through studying the Down’s Syndrome Awareness Course, you will discover the support available to children and their families and the difference it can making in preparing them for school, engaging in relationships, and understanding the world around them..
As children with Down’s syndrome move into adolescence, again they have the same issues as typical teenagers, though they may require more assistance in understanding the changes they are going through
