Children with DS present a challenge to NPs and other health care providers because of their unique developmental and medical differences. Part I of this Clinical Practice Guideline is intended to be used as a reference and guide when caring for young children with Down syndrome and their families. Part II: Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Adolescent and Young Adult With Down Syndrome will be published in the JPHC May/June 2006 issue.
