What can children with Down syndrome accomplish? The possibilites are endless. With improved health care, methods of teaching, and tailored therapies, children with Down syndrome are thriving. We should no longer place any limits on our kids with Down syndrome.
Yes, it is possible for children with Down syndrome to have normal intelligence. And Early Intervention (providing nurturing, therapy and teaching) has been shown to increase a child’s potential. But here’s the thing many parents don’t realize – the most optimal time for a child to learn is before the age of four or five years of age! Yes, before a child goes to school! It is crucial that babies with Down syndrome begin learning very soon after birth, with special techniques.
This means it is up to the parents to learn how to maximize their child’s development not only by teaching their child, but knowing what not to do which may limit the child’s success.
A consultation with Dr. Julia Kinder can save you time by showing you exactly what you need to do, when to do it, and how. Because babies with Down syndrome should start learning by age 3 months, many parents find it stressful and overwhelming to figure out what they must be doing.
