The most common, most easily recognised and probably the most researched single condition causing learning disability - Down's syndrome. Based on extensive interviews and questionnaires focusing on fundamental issues of development and upbringing, Dr Carr has followed the lives of a population-based cohort of Down's syndrome subjects from birth to early adulthood. This volume details particularly the development of study groups between the ages 11 and 21 years with a longitudinal perspective reference to earlier years as appropriate. A wide range of factors are investigated from behaviour, discipline and independence through to effects on the family and the provision of help from services. The collection of this unique data spanning the first 21 years of life enables Dr Carr to offer discussion and advice which will be of international relevance and an invaluable reference for all those concerned with the care, health and well-being of Down's syndrome individuals and their families.

"This is an extremely valuable is presented in a cohesive, useful manner...a very useful reference for anyone interested in the development, progress, daily problems, and family issues of children born with Down's Syndrome." Ada Dorothy Hayes, Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
"Carr's fascinating book is uniquely interesting....The book serves as a concrete and pointed reminder that children with Down syndrome do indeed grow....The volume will, I hope, convince researchers that older age groups merit as much attention as do young...and that research with adults who have the disorder will provide additional insights into developmental processes of individuals with Down syndrome." Jennifer G. Wishart, American Journal on Mental Retardation
