More information

Down's syndrome is a genetic condition that usually causes some level of learning disability. It happens when there is an extra chromosome in a person's cells.

Each year we celebrate World Down's syndrome Day on 21 March (21/03) to recognise the 3 strands of Chromosome 21. 

Chromosomes usually come in pairs and are shaped like little pairs of socks.

As people with Down's syndrome have 3 strands of Chromosome 21, this is why we celebrate World Down's syndrome Day by wearing odd or mismatched socks!
