Hi Alan, There is a significant number of Downs People who stutter. Most likely much higher than 1% of the general population. You are not meeting them because as older children, teens, and adults, you don't see them in the mainstream activities that often. However, if you went to the Special Olympics, you may see quite a few Downs children who stutter but the focus is NOT on stuttering. Good to hear from you. Judith
