Hi Molly, The DOWNS child most likely has a harder time to achieve fluency. Because of the genetic disorder, they have several innate risks for stuttering. These are reduced oral-motor coordination, word-finding/language formulation difficulties, and middle ear infections. Please order the SFA Brochure on Stuttering & Downs for a nice summary of this information. Thank you. Judith
