Did you know? Visuals can help people with Down syndrome feel more comfortable at medical appointments.
Medical appointments and tests can be frightening, especially if we do not know what to expect. Visuals can help people with and without Down syndrome feel more comfortable during appointments and tests such as x-rays, EEGs, blood draws, and ultrasounds. Some people benefit from reviewing the visual several days before an appointment. Others tend to ruminate if given too much notice about an upcoming appointment or test. It may be more beneficial to review the visual on their way to the appointment. Check out our collection of Visuals for Medical Appointments in our Resource Library. There is no cost to access and print the visuals.
