Before reading this article I thought treatment for children with Down Syndrome would be different than treating normally developing children who stutter. Children with down go through the same emotional roller-coaster as other children with stuttering problems. Treatment should not focus on modifications (this should be secondary) but should focus on being comfortable with their stuttering.
