Toddler

 
Our child with Down Syndrome has left the new born stage and has become a toddler. Often this process takes longer with children with Down Syndrome due to the developmental delays. This set of fora will discuss the challenges of raising a toddler aged child with Down Syndrome.

As with typical children we often need to place our toddler with Down Syndrome in a day care facility. This forum is for discussion of the difficulties, hardships and joys around your experiences with the preschool facilities. It is my hope that we can share with each other the experiences of our neighborhood areas so that you can find the best solution for your child.

As our children move from babyhood into toddlerhood we want to make sure we keep current with the health of our children. Toddlers with Down Syndrome tend to be no different than a typical child as they grow except for those things that are particular to anyone with Down Syndrome. Karen and I were lucky in that we only had to deal with Down Syndrome and later ADHD but many of you face struggles that require special measures of health management. I hope that you find this forum useful to you as you seek answers to your health management questions.

Siblings are a child's best friends. However siblings can present us with unique challenges when one of those siblings has Down Syndrome. As our baby moves from babyhood to toddlerhood we want to make sure that all the children continue to get along. Ownership of toys and other items becomes an issue. Safety of things left laying around becomes an issue. I hope that this forum can help you as you meet the challenges siblings and toddlers can bring us.

As the new born becomes a toddler he or she grows out of the new born toys and games and wanting toys and games that are more stimulating and exciting. Still we need to keep our children with Down Syndrome active and on the move.
