The symptoms of Down’s syndrome differ from one person to another. They also affect the person at different stages of their life. Some of these symptoms are listed below:
- A deep trench between the first and second toes.
- A single, thick, crease across the palm.
- Decreased or poor muscle tone.
- Flat facial profile and nose.
- Little neck, with overflow skin at its back.
- Small head, ears, and mouth.
- Eyes are leaning upward, often with a skin fold that extends out from the upper eyelid and reaches the inner corner of the eye.
- White spots on the iris (called Brush field spots)
- Wide, short hands with short fingers.
These were some of the physical symptoms of Down’s syndrome. However, a few cognitive problems are associated with it as well. They are rarely severe by nature and usually range from mild to moderate. Some of them are:
- Limited attention span.
- Bad judgment.
- Unpredictable behavior.
- Impaired learning abilities.
- Slowed language and speech development.
