Down syndrome Student's Name Affiliate Institution Course Unit Date Due Downs Syndrome Downs syndrome is a disorder resulting from a change in the genetic makeup of an individual. Changes in the makeup of the gene occur because of many reasons. Some of the reasons for the changes include factors caused by the environment like radiation. Depending on the change in genetic structure a specific genetic disorder arises. In most cases downs syndrome occurs as a result of alterations that happen in the chromosome. To understand more about this disorder this excerpt will examine its epidemiology characteristics and causes with a focus on identifying and describing a typical behavioral problem associated with the syndrome. Finally a detailed description of a non-medical approach used to address the behavior associated with downs syndrome will be given.
