UK-WHO growth charts - Down Syndrome, 0-18 years

Our growth charts for Down Syndrome are based on WHO Child Growth Standards.

The 2011 growth charts are jointly badged by RCPCH and DSMIG and are representative of healthy children with Down Syndrome living in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Growth can be charted from term to 18 years.

The 0-18 years down syndrome growth charts are available to purchase via the Down Syndrome Medical Interest Group (DSMIG).

Information is provided as to how to assess the growth of preterm babies and how to evaluate the needs of those with apparently faltering growth. Weight-height BMI conversion charts are also included for children over the age of two.
