Revised growth charts available to download, print

Updated growth charts (height, weight, head circumference and weight/length) for people with Down syndrome from birth to 20 years of age are now available to download. The charts are based on data collected in a US research study published by the journal Pediatrics inAugust 2015.

These charts can help healthcare providers monitor growth among children with Down syndrome and assess how well a child with Down syndrome is growing when compared to peers with Down syndrome.

The .pdf format released by the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention is easier to download and print than sourcing them directly from the research paper.
