World Down Syndrome day is recognised on 21 March 2015.  This year marks the 10th anniversary of World Down Syndrome day which has been officially recognised by the United Nations since 2012.
What is Down's Syndrome?
Down's Syndrome is a genetic condition and its cause is an extra chromosome 21 in the body's cells.  The syndrome is not a disease or hereditary condition and occurs at conception.  At present, there is no known cause for the presence of the extra chromosome 21.  Approximately 1 in 1000 babies in the UK are born with Down's Syndrome and there are over 40,000 people in the UK with the condition. People with Down's Syndrome often share more physical features than with their family members.  Every person born with Down's Syndrome will have some degree of learning disability.
