Educación y Síndrome de Down

Tal como hace el resto de las personas, quienes tienen síndrome de Down aprenden y se desarrollan a su propio ritmo y de su propio modo. Las personas con síndrome de Down tienen varias metas para el futuro y expectativas individuales de su papel en la familia, la escuela y la comunidad.

El síndrome de Down no es una marca de potencial o una receta para un determinado plan educativo o de vida.

Sin embargo, las personas con síndrome de Down a menudo tienen retraso leve a moderado en su desarrollo cognitivo y físico y las investigaciones han demostrado que las intervenciones educativas y terapéuticas (tales como los servicios de intervención temprana) pueden beneficiar enormemente a los estudiantes con síndrome de Down. Generalmente es necesario considerar las opciones con cuidado, buscar apoyos y hacer una planificación temprana para facilitar el empleo y la vida en la comunidad.
