My name is Ana and I have a beautiful down syndrome son who is 11 years old. These 11 years have been challanging but worth evey second. The key to my son's success, having the correct therapists, right doctors, right school and a wonderful dad. Down syndrome children need continious stimulation and they need to do things at there own pace. My son reads, writes, counts and is excetpionally independant. The school he attends has ensured all this is possible. If sign language is a form of cmmunication for them, so be it until THEY ready for the next step. Potty training needs a huge amount of fuss and patience when acheived. Everything no matter how small needs a BIG applause.
