First published in 1982, this positive and practical book has rapidly established itself as the definitive work for parents of Down's syndrome children, enabling them to face the shock and anxiety of learning that their baby is handicapped, and giving them a wealth of information and guidance to help them make the right decisions for the child's future and their own. The author's long experience with Down's syndrome children, and his sympathetic approach to coping with the problems that may arise, have made the book required reading.

The many advances that have taken place in recent years, both in our knowledge of Down's syndrome and in improved techniques of treatment and developmental training, have necessitated radical revision of the text. In this second edition the author includes much new information on characteristics of the condition, on treatment and the pros and cons of surgey and therapy, on development and behaviour, both in the young child and the older person, and on the importance of pre-school facilities. He has incorporated recent comments and reactions from parents, revealing a more positive and optimistic attitude than that expressed by parents a few years ago, and he advisesĀ on professional guidance and how to obtain it. Since 1982 there have been developments in techniques of prenatal testing, and information about these is included in the Appendix.

With greatly improved medical and educational facilities, many Down's syndrome children can now grow up to play a full role in their communities, attending mainstream schools and finding employment in the open market. This hopeful picture is reflected in a book that remains as valuable and informative as it has proved to be in the past.
