Senin, 11 Juni 2012 05.52 Diposting oleh Wulan Pertiwi

Children with Down syndrome are at risk for vision and/or hearing impairments. This dual sensory impairment is seldom recognized in this population, although much can be done through appropriate early intervention, education, and health care to minimize the impact of deaf-blindness on the lives of these children. Trisomy 21, its associated health conditions, and the syndrome's effects on hearing and vision are described. A brief discussion of early intervention and education is provided as well as the future for children living with Down syndrome and dual sensory impairments. This article highlights the need for research in dual sensory impairment in those with Down syndrome and provides basic guidelines for professionals and parents in understanding and addressing complex learning needs.
