Down syndrome is the most common cause of intellectual disability in Australia and renowned child health expert Professor Fiona Stanley calls Greater Expectations THE book to read if you have a child with Down syndrome.
Based on more than sixty personal interviews and supported by scholarly research, the book shows the varied attitudes and approaches which together make up the rich experience of living with Down syndrome in a changing society.
This moving, partly autobiographical, account is a must for all those people – parents, teachers, health professionals and policy makers – who make choices that affect people with Down syndrome.
