What is Down Syndrome?

There are 46 chromosomes in each cell of a person. However, in the cell of a person with Down Syndrome, there are 47. This extra chromosome is the cause of distinct physical appearance and intellectual status of people with Down Syndrome. If appropriate training and support can be given at early stage, people with Down Syndrome are able to live happily and independently.

Our Heartfelt Gratitude

No matter table tennis or musical, both are Sai Kwong’s favourite! In fact, he actively joins all sort of activities organized by the Association. Sai Kwong’s mother found Sai Kwong looked happier and outgoing after joining these activities. His social skills was improved and helped him able to meet more friends. More important is, Sai Kwong’s self-care ability becomes better after taking related training course. He can now get to his workplace and the Center by himself. His mother doesn’t need to worry much about him!

Before the outbreak of the epidemic, you can always see ManMan at our Center. “She is a super fan of the HKDSA, it is the second home for her.” Her mom laughed. Through joining the activities, ManMan not only met lots of good friend here, but also developed a healthy lifestyle which kept her physical and mental health healthy.  ManMan now back to the Center for joining activities like singing and some training activities once the service resumed. “It is glad the Center offers opportunities for Man Man to border her social circle and have a room to unleash her talents with appreciation and recognition” said ManMan’s Mom.
