Frequently Asked Questions
(coming soon) About the author About Down Syndrome Down syndrome is a genetic condition in which there are three 21st chromosomes instead of the usual two. Most people have 46 chromosomes per cell originating from the 23 chromosomes in the mother's egg and 23 in the father's sperm. Not all people with Down syndrome have the same chromosomal arrangement, however. Ninety-five percent of people with Down syndrome (trisomy 21) have 47 chromosomes per cell (they have an extra #21 chromosome). This common type of trisomy 21 is called non-disjunction Three to four percent of people with Down syndrome have Robertsonian Translocation , where the number of chromosomes is normal, but the extra chromosome 21 material is attached with chromosome 14. The remainder have a rare type of Down syndrome in which some of their cells have 46 chromosomes and some have 47 chromosomes. This is called

Down Syndrome Sites
on the Internet
Compiled by Len Leshin, MD, FAAP
If you do a web search for "Down syndrome" on any of the major search engines, you'll now get thousands of websites in return. When I first started this list, my intention was to make it as comprehensive as I could, and with only a few hundred sites, it used to be easier. With the rapid expansion of the internet over the last three years, however, that goal has become almost impossible. So here are the sites that I feel have the most to offer parents of children with Down syndrome ("DS" for short). If any of these links are incorrect or out of date, please let me know. (To quote Chris Gravell: "this is what happens when you go on leave for 3 weeks - all the links have changed when you get back.") Any omissions or errors are my responsibility alone. Also, please let me know if you have any sites to add.
Many of these sites contain medical information. My linking to such a site does not imply my endorsement of such medical (or other) advice. As always, caveat lector: "let the reader beware."

What is Down Syndrome? A "syndrome" is a medical condition that is categorized by a multitude of symptoms. Down syndrome, also called Trisomy 21 is the most common cause of mental retardation and malformation in a newborn. It occurs because of the presence of an extra 21st chromosome. Chromosomes are the materials that store people's genetic information. Each person inherits 23 chromosomes from their mother and twenty three chromosomes from their father. Sometimes an accident occurs and one of the parents gives an extra chromosome. When the extra chromosome happens to be chromosome number 21, Down Syndrome occurs. Down Syndrome is not contagious.

WELCOMING BABIES WITH down syndrome. We wish you all the best. What is down syndrome?down syndrome is a chromosomal anomaly that occurs in 1.3 per 1000 births.
If you are welcoming a new baby with Down Syndrome into your family, you probably have many questions and concerns, as do your extended family, friends, and neighbors. We have written this information keeping in mind our own diverse experiences when our children were born with DS.
Congratulations on the birth of your baby. We wish you all the best.
What is Down Syndrome?
Down Syndrome is a chromosomal anomaly that occurs in 1.3 per 1000 births. For some unexplained reason, an error in cell development results in 47 chromosomes rather than the usual 46. The extra gene material slightly changes the orderly development of the body and brain. About 5000 babies with Down Syndrome are born in the United States every year. The national population of individuals with Down Syndrome is estimated to be 250,000. About 80% of babies with Down Syndrome are born to mothers under the age of 35. About 1 in 400 babies born to women over 35 have Down Syndrome. People with Down Syndrome are more like typically developing individuals than they are different. There is great diversity within the population in terms of personality, learning styles, intelligence, appearance, compliance, humor, compassion, congeniality, and attitude. Favorite pastimes vary from person to person and range from reading, gardening and travel to baseball, music, and beyond.

Welcome to Mosaic Down Syndrome on the Web. My name is Linda Beets, and I am the proud mommy of Karlee, my beautiful angel girl, born on April 27, 1999, and diagnosed with MDS. When my daughter was born, there was absolutely nothing on the Internet about MDS. I was devastated. It was because of this devastation and lack of information that this website now new parents won't ever have to experience what I did (and so many others). I (and many others) personally thank Bree Prive of NJ DesignWorks , for taking such an enthusiastic approach in creating, designing and maintaining this website. I know that this site's contents may appear "general" to many of you, but I wish I had a website such as this to go to last April, the day I found out what my daughter's diagnosis was. I do not feel alone anymore. This site continues to be updated, so do check back frequently. Thank you. To navigate through this site, use the navigation bar to your left.
