Paul.T.Rogers and Mary Coleman
Dekker. ISBN 0-8247-8684-X
order from Amazon

Primarily for health professionals, this book combines an explanation of the commonest medical issues in Down's syndrome with a suggested programme for preventive medical care in children and adults. The text is not always very detailed, but there are many useful references for more in-depth information. The suggested programmes of care are clear and comprehensive though are geared to the USA health care service, and therefore not always easily applicable to the UK, or in keeping with our current guidelines. There is some useful discussion about controversial therapies, and future research.
