Down's Syndrome

America has become more aware of certain special children who have a condition called Down's Syndrome. For the past 40 years, Kentuckiana Children's Center has effectively treated these children. Many of these children have had additional health problems such as asthma, respiratory infections, allergies, heart defects, speech and hearing loss, visual perceptual conditions and poor muscle tone. Further still, many have scoliosis, spinal subluxations, trace mineral malabsorption and central nervous system dysfunction.

Through Kentuckiana's outpatient clinic, these children have received multi-disciplinary professional services which includes chiropractic, optometry, nutrition, as well as medical consultations. . . all working in unison for the development of each child's potential.

James, who is five and enrolled in The Center's developmental readiness program, now prefers academically-oriented tasks at a desk rather than playing.

Patricia, whose heart condition required surgery early in life along with leg braces, was later able to develop normal muscle tone and mainstreamed in public school. She also knows what it feels like to win a gold medal at the Olympic Swimming Meet! In addition, she is very proud of her job at the bakery. Her mother had this to say about The Center's services, "When I brought her to The Center, it was the only place that was really looking at the whole child."

Each day, life (healthier and happier) goes on for these children at Kentuckiana Children's Center.
