Kids with Down syndrome aren’t different – they are just special. They are as special as every other person, and it’s their individuality people should cherish. Yes, sometimes, it’s difficult, but it’s all worth it.
Early communication for kids with Down syndrome
It’s not all the same for kids with Down syndrome. Some children with the condition say their first word at 13 months, others not until 36 months, according to downs-syndrome.org.uk. The development of their speech depends on a number of factors, such as muscle control, vision, hearing, and just ability to learn, among others.
Too touching episode
For this toddler, his first word was even more special, as it happened under very touching circumstances. His mother was just thrilled to hear the word she’s been waiting for so long.
