Thank you for giving more information about this population, they truly do deserve a special look. You said that children with Down's begin to stutter at around 8 and 9 years old when they are gaining large amounts of vocabulary like a normally developing 3 and 4 year olds. In your experience have you found that the same percentage of children with Down's that stutter will spontaneously recover as non-Down's children that stutter?
