Q and A- Ds type

Jessica asked what type of Down syndrome Chase has.  He has the regular old trisomy 21, which means by genetic fluke, he ended up with three copies of the 21st chromosome instead of two.  Every single one of his cells has it.  

I am pretty much convinced that his propensity to throw things, love people, and smile with his eyes closed is contained on that extra gene.
