We have been sent a copy of Down's Syndrome - The Essential Guide by Antonia Chitty and Victoria Dawson to review. This is the third book in the series that they have written (the first being Special Educational Needs - A Parents Guide).
Down's Syndrome - The Essential Guide is for parents who have just received a diagnosis as well as parents who are already caring for a child with the condition and it covers all aspects of Down's syndrome from diagnosis to adulthood.
In my opinion this book is great, it has simple easy to read chapters so that you can dip in and out as things become relevant to you or read it in one sitting. There are facts, parents experiences and a very comprehensive list of support organisations - a fantastic resource for anyone with a child with Down's Syndrome or who is caring for one.
