Down syndrome is a lifelong condition. Timely support early in life can help babies and children with Down syndrome to improve their physical and intellectual abilities. Most of these focus on helping children with Down syndrome develop to their full potential. These include speech, occupational, and physical therapy, and they should be offered and available early in life. Children with Down syndrome may also need extra help or attention in school, and many children can be included in mainstream or regular classes.

With India being one of the highest birthing nations, there is greater incidence of Down Syndrome and it occurs in approximately 1 out of 830 live births, as per Down Syndrome Federation of India.
