Down Syndrome (DS) is a genetic disease that affects thousands of families. Children with DS often require more medical care since there are over 100 anomalies associated with DS (Philips & Boyd, 2015). Without proper knowledge of DS, it is difficult for healthcare workers to provide effective and relevant care. This paper will focus on physical differences of people with DS, emotional coping in families of children with DS, along with interventions for physical and behavioral health that nurses can implement.
