31 for 21 - Top 100 Special Needs Resources on the Web

    Pretty neat. Our Down syndrome blog made it into the top 100 List of Special Education sites. In the Down syndrome category it says this:

                 "Down (or Down’s) Syndrome, also known by the name trisomy 21, occurs when an extra copy of chromosome 21 is present in a person’s genome. Down syndrome is diagnosed at birth, and can be tested for very early in pregnancy. Those with the condition usually have low IQs and unusually broad, flat, and round faces, as well as large tongues, which may cause their speech to be impeded. Since trisomy 21 is the most common known chromosomal disorder, special education programs are often well equipped to serve people with Down Syndrome. Additionally, a strong support community of bloggers and others willing to share their stories about Down’s Syndrome has evolved. The sites below are some of the best sources for info on parenting, education, and other aspects of raising a child with Down’s."

I must give a special thanks to my oldest daughter, Qadoshyah Fish. Without her efforts, our knowledge about Down syndrome and all that can be done for our little guy would be way different, I think.

Please feel free to contact us if you need help in understanding the health and nutritional side of things in relation to Down syndrome. You can email me here - Kim Fish
