Even though it may take a little bit more time for kids with Down Syndrome to learn things, it does not mean that it is challenging for all and they will learn all of the same things that typically developing children do. We have been working really hard on teaching Colin his alphabet, numbers, and colors. We try to count as many things as we can with Colin so that the repetition will help as a "hand over hand" technique. Colin is doing so well with his numbers and has a specific sound that goes with each number up to 10. This next video is horrible quality, but it was on my phone this afternoon after our walk and shows Colin counting. I love the little head nod too with each number.
