Down’s Syndrome in the Family: A Personal Perspective

  • Hubert H. Humphrey


As the grandparent of a 12-year-old girl with Down’s syndrome, I know fully the importance of counseling to parents who are heartbroken by the birth of a handicapped child and fearful of having other children. More than anything else, they need information. They need to know that there will be professional support available to help them in the days, months and years ahead and genetic counseling to determine the advisability of having other children.
