“You’re not disabled by the disabilities you have, you are able by the ability you have.” Down’s syndrome also known as Trisomy21, is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of a third copy of chromosome. It is typically associated with physical growth delays, idiosyncratic facial features and mild to moderate intellectual growth. It is a highly common yet oblivious arena for awareness in India due to stigmatization and lack of understanding pertaining to this phenomenon.  This study aims at investigating the family environment of a child suffering with Down’s syndrome and care towards a child can promote holistic development of a child. Timely intervention and sentience of Down’s syndrome can burgeon the mental growth of a child enduring Down’s syndrome. The author has taken up a specific study and has focused on the development of a child; Rashi Vyas in order to substantiate the normative study opted by her. As quoted above it is a matter of approach which can change the outcome and so can be seen by analyzing the family environment of Ms. Rashi Vyas.
