Days 4 and 5 of Down Syndrome Awareness! Reading books and Types of DS!

DS Awareness Day #5: There are 3 types of Down Syndrome. There are three types of Down syndrome: trisomy 21 (nondisjunction) accounts for 95% of cases, translocation accounts for about 4%, and mosaicism accounts for about 1%.

Evie is that feisty little girl with the button nose and dimples, who has a passion for music and swinging. #evietheextraordinary
