National Institute of Health looking for Participants

Children with Down syndrome have a Story to Tell!
Researchers at the NIH are conducting a research study on brain development and learning in children and young adults with Down syndrome.  All procedures (including brain imaging, learning and memory testing) take about 8-10 hours, spread out over 3-4 visits, to complete on an outpatient basis at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
Children and young adults may be eligible to participate if they are between 3 and 30 years old and have a confirmed chromosomal diagnosis of Down syndrome.  Volunteers will be compensated for their participation. Parent or legal guardian, child, and young adult must agree to participation. All clinical evaluations and research procedures are free of cost.
