Individuals with Down syndrome need the usual health care screenings and evaluations recommended for the general population. However, because children and adults with Down syndrome are at increased risk of having and/or developing a variety of medical conditions, there are additional tests or evaluations that are recommended.

The most recent guidelines, "Health Supervision for Children with Down Syndrome", were published by the American Academy of Pediatrics in Pediatrics (Vol. 128, No. 2, August 1, 2011. Pp. 393-406).
