Mosaic down sydrome basically means that not every cell is effected, if my memory recalls me, less than 3 % of children/adults with downs have mosaics. Usually, mosaic downs don't look so effected, and progress quicker. When my son was born 18 yrs ago I was hoping he would have mosaic!...sadly not the case.
