Re: my daughter is 15 years old could this be mosaic down syndrome?

I know someone with a young son who has T21 and after much research was sure her older daughter- 8 years- had mosaic. They tested her and she does. Point being, I think there are a lot of people out there with cognitive delays who don't know they have ds. And, like others have said mosaic downs can affect as little as 5% of your cells.

But, I do want to point out that there are a lot of professionals and parents who disagree that the fact your child has mosaic means they will have less health and learning problems.

Go to her Dr. and request testing. Knowledge is power.
