Understanding Common Syndromes


The term ‘syndrome’ is used to describe a collection or combination of conditions which develop together and result from a single cause. For example, a person who has Down syndrome may have intellectual disabilities, distinctive physical features, and health issues (such as a heart condition).

Syndromes and Conditions covered in the Understanding Common Syndromes Module include:

  • Down Syndrome
