     See a SAMPLE project here: Down Syndrome SAMPLE

    Use the links provided on my website here https://ca01001129.schoolwires.net/Page/4944 to research your chosen birth defect and create an original Powerpoint presentation IN YOUR OWN WORDS, with the following required slides:


    Slide 1: Title of Birth Defect, Name(s), Period, Date
    Slide 2: Description & Prevalence: Briefly describe the defect. How common is this birth defect?
    Slide 3: Diagnosis: When and how is this birth defect diagnosed?
    Slide 4: Causes and Risk Factors: Who is at risk for this defect? What causes it?
    Slide 5: Treatment: How is this defect treated? Be sure to include medical care, parenting, and/or education accommodations. Everything done to help a baby, child, teen, or adult with this defect is part of the treatment.
    Slide 6: Information & Support Organizations: Where can parents find more information on this birth defect? You may NOT write, "Check the library and check the internet!" You must list the titles of the book(s) from the library and the names of the websites on the internet. Be SPECIFIC! Almost every major birth defect has at least one national or international organization devoted to providing fund raising and providing information and support for affected families and individuals. List at least one of these organizations, along with contact information (website, phone, and/or address).
    Slide 7: Bibliography: Use www.easybib.com to create a citation for the information (all websites) researched in your presentation. Remember to site the textbook if you use it for info.
