Hi Tammy, my daughter was born with down syndrome and she was diagnosed at 2 months old (In June 2012). Honestly, my opinion would be to get into contact with ECI (early childhood intervention). They are therapists and nurses that will come to your home and help with your son with things that he may need help with.. they really are great. Its pretty much state funded.. we dont have to pay a penny and my daughters therapist comes twice a month to show us excercises to help strengthen her tone! (:
