In our country the diagnosis "syndrome Down" turns out to be a verdict which leads to the loss of parents in most of the cases. Nine of ten families reject their children immediately. And only five of these nine live more than one year. Only 10% of children with the Down syndrome live in families. The rest of them are grown up and educated in orphanages.Some of the families did not want to put up with this situation and decided to establish a public organization of parents and defectologists. The mission of this organisation is to defend and realize the rights of the disabled guaranteed by the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
