Understanding Down Syndrome
In order to understand Down syndrome, we must look at the 23 pairs of chromosomes that are found within the nucleus of our cells. These chromosomes carry genetic information, in the form of genes, and half of the chromosomes are inherited from each parent. If an individual has a full or partial extra copy of chromosome 21, Down syndrome will occur. Down syndrome cannot be cured. With Down syndrome therapy services from Pasitos Clinic, children with the diagnosis will be able to live healthy, productive lives. These therapy services often entail speech and occupational therapy.
Down Syndrome Therapy Services from Pasitos Clinic
Speech therapy may be necessary in order to help children with Down syndrome communicate in a more effective manner. Occupational therapy may also be implemented in order to improve the child’s cognitive and motor skills. To further promote the child’s well-being, our trained staff attends special education meetings at the patient’s school to ensure proper advocacy is provided. Our unique approach to treating children with Down syndrome yields the results parents hope for. In fact, we understand the importance of involving the child’s parents and/or caregivers in the rehabilitation process. Therefore, we offer psychoeducation as well as emotional support to our patient’s parents.
