Abstract
 
Description
A Time to Learn is an informative and inspirational book about Down syndrome written for parents, family members and professionals who have the pleasure of having a person with Down syndrome in their life. This book covers; the definition of Down syndrome, medical concerns, early intervention, therapies, educational placements, academics, social issues, and resources to find further information. Along with these topics a chapter is dedicated to the parents of children with Down syndrome. In this chapter you will find heartfelt stories written by parents about their experiences, hopes, fears and dreams. With the birth of a baby with Down syndrome comes many questions, fears, uncertainty and concerns for the future. It's my hope that when parents, family members and others read this book it provides some comfort and encourages them to continue to search for answers and take the "time to learn".Comments received from parents regarding the potential of this book:"It sounds like you are taking on a terrific project for your book.""Congratulations on your work. I think it is sorely needed." "Congratulations on your excellent topic (and specialty)! It's simply AMAZING what horrible books are out there on DS. Thanks for doing this!"What a huge endeavor you have undertaken! Your content list seems all encompassing." "Thank you for putting this information together. Parents of children with DS will greatly appreciate it." "I believe a guidebook from other parents with children with Down syndrome is a great idea. Thank you for putting that together." "What a gift to be given to parents-to-be upon the diagnosis of T21!" - from Amzon
