Volunteer Abroad Alliance - Senegal - Warang - counseling of children down syndrome

Children with Down syndrome are more likely to have medical problems that can lead to physical problems over the years. Problems can also arise with behaviour, upbringing and mental development.

Regular monitoring from the first month of life through the teenage years is very important. In this way problems can be detected early and treated as well as possible and the child and the family can be guided as well as possible.

Advances in medical science have dramatically increased the health and life expectancy of children with Down syndrome. For example, early detection of problems can contribute to a better quality of life for the child.
