An ugly face, disability in self caring, low IQ and a many similar characteristics are normal identities of Down syndrome. Though, the person suffering from Down syndrome is not self responsible for the disease but still bears the tag of mental retarded personality. Being the victim of 21st chromosome or Down syndrome is like stigma in the society. So, the premier online website downssyndromeinfo.com has taken a wise initiative and launched its all new e-guide for the friends and family of Down syndrome victims.

It is an ultimate fact that there are no absolute cures for Down syndrome but we can minimize its ultimate impact on our day-to-day life. This guide helps in removing the stigma of parasite for all Down syndrome victims. One must understand that even Down syndrome victims are normal person as we are. There are laws in almost every country for the ensuring proper growth and career prospect of Down syndrome victims. For instance, one can check out section 504 of The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, The Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1991. Even, the federal laws were passed to ensure adequate protection for the people with Down syndrome.

The story has been taken down. My neice has downsyndrome. Life is not about looks. She is a wonderful caring person who loves more deeply than anyone I know. She teaches me how to be more open with my feelings.

I'm so glad that story was removed! Not only offensive in word choice and tone, but poorly researched and written! Disappointing.

That article was apalling from the start. I wrote to the editor in hopes they will review articles like that more carefully. He was trying in some wierd way to advocate against the stigmas of people with DS all the while in the same sentence stigmatizing them HIMSELF! How very irritating how people can be so ignorant.
