Down syndrome, also known as trisomy 21, is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of an extra chromosome in an individual. For each pair, you get one chromosome from your mother and one from your father. It helps to determine the formation of an embryo and functions as it develops during pregnancy and after birth. The average IQ of a young adult with Down syndrome is 50, which is the IQ degree of an eight- or nine-year-old child.
