Speech and Language
Children with Down syndrome are usually good communicators. They are have strengths in social interactions right from infancy but they have to rely on non-verbal skills such as gesture for longer than other children because they usually experience significant speech and language delay. Once they start to talk, they make good use of the speech and language skills that they have for the same range of communicative activities as everyone else, particularly if encouraged to do so by sensitive support from those around them at home, at school and in the community. - Sue Buckley
