Thank you for your wonderful article! The topic of stuttering and Down Syndrome does not come up much in school, so it was nice to read about it here and to be given some links to other resources! I enjoyed your article because your observations, impressions, etc., covered a wide variety of different aspects of stuttering and Down Syndrome. You listed good ideas and thoughts, such as "reducing the shame of stuttering". Thank you also for providing information for the different age groups. In your experience, do you get to work with OTs frequently, or do you find that working with them on sensory integration happens every once in awhile? Also, what are some tips/advice that you would give parents of a child with Down Syndrome who stutters? Thanks again for your informative article!
