Speech & Down Syndrome

Saw this wonderful article posted today on Facebook and just had to share it here. Deborah Yost wrote about Understanding Speech Difficulty for Down Syndrome today and her example to teach others how difficult it is to speak due to complications caused by Down syndrome is so helpful!

I think when the boys get home from school today, we will have to do a little video demonstration for the blog. Aidan has often asked "When is Sean going to start talking like me?" What a great learning tool this will be! I will share the results tomorrow.

Hi, just found your blog through Unringing the Bell. This is so interesting, about the speech and the marshmellow. Speech is something I've been thinking about a lot lately, as it seems my six year old's speech is finally taking off, however he is still SO difficult to understand that I sometimes forget how far he's come.

Also, I'm mom to an Eleanor too.
I look forward to reading more of your blog!
