That depends. Men with Down syndrome have been shown to be sterile, while women with Down syndrome are capable of carrying a child, with 50% likelihood that the child will be …born with Down syndrome.
Down's syndrome will give your child a total amount of 47 chromosomes in his/her somatic cells as opposed to the normal human who has only 46 chromosomes in his/her somatic ce…lls. In addition Down's syndrome will lower the metal ability of the child and will give the child distinct facial features (such as a very circular face). It also affects the fertility of the child as well. Males are mostly sterile and females can be fertile, but it is very hard to have a baby. Usually the baby is prematurely born, aborted naturally, or needed surgery to take out.
No! They are just as kind and gentle as regular people - in fact they ARE regular people. There is certainly no specific DS characteristic for 'harmful' behaviour. The quest…ion itself is a bit silly. Can ANY child be harmful? Of course they can, especially when they are brought up by parents who are 'harmful' or disfunctional. However, I would suggest that parents who a caring and stable enough to raise a disabled child are rarely 'harmful' people, so DS chaildren are rarely harmful, but tend to be loving and caring. That is my experience. They aren't as smart as normal people, and MAY have trouble recognising context. So things that may be acceptable in one place (hugging Mum & Dad for example) may be inappropriately applied in another (hugging people they meet).
well it depends on how bad it could be like it could be bad as you can not talk walk or eat and some people have physical training to help them interact better with different …people or just to do simple things to opening a door to eating with a spoon for some people this usually can have an effect to a brain tumor growing.
Yes, children with Down syndrome can get adopted. I have two sisters, both have Down Syndrome, and both were adopted. They are amazing :)
in all honesty its probably hard to deal with but you should give her a lot of support and be nice. give her support when she needs it and help her she has a harder time doing… every day stuff than you do living with her so give her a break, be a good brother to her it will help a lot.
Downs Syndrome has quite varied impacts on the people it affects. Some are badly affected and need permanent caregivers, others have only a minor affliction and can lead close… to normal lives. If people can lead fully normal lives they are not then classified as having Downs Syndrome.
The likelihood of an individual with down syndrome to conceive a child is extremely rare. There is infertility among both males and females with Down syndrome; males are usual…ly unable to father children, while females demonstrate significantly lower rates of conception relative to unaffected individuals. Women with DS are less fertile and often have difficulties with miscarriage, premature birth and difficult labor. Without implantation genetic diagnosis. approximately half of the offspring of someone with Down syndrome also have the syndrome themselves. Men with DS are almost uniformly infertile,, exhibiting defects in spermatogenesis. There have been only three recorded instances of males with Down syndrome fathering children
The average life expectancy for a person with Down Syndrome is between 50 and 55 years.
approximately half of the offspring of someone with Down syndrome also have the syndrome themselves
It is highly unlikely.
