Down Syndrome research

 

Many organizations work collaboratively to advance our understanding of how individuals with Down syndrome develop cognitive, social, and language skills.  Researchers conduct studies so that families, educators, and the medical community can work together to meet the needs of individuals with Down syndrome. These studies are designed in order  to provide families with the information and resources that will promote positive development in the lives of  people with Down syndrome.

None of these advancements would be possible without the involvement of individuals with Down syndrome and their families! These families contribute so much by providing researchers with a wealth of knowledge when they participate in studies. The DSAM encourages families to stay up-to-date on current research regarding Down syndrome and even participate in studies when they have the opportunity to do so. The following links contain information regarding previous studies and opportunities to particpate in future studies.
