  1. Hello, we have 5years old girl with d Syndrome and epilepsy (under medication), and I was recomened to aply a IQ test to her. I thinks is Wisc… Im not interest in know her IQ level, we need to know her strenght, and weakness to provide the help. Is there a test for that?
    Greetings from Panama.

    1. I’m unsure what the guidelines are for testing and services in Panama. In our clinic we typically recommend a full IQ around age 7. A brief IQ and adaptive behavior (life skills) evaluation are given at younger ages. It’s important for the testing to be comprehensive and include input from people most familiar with your daughter including you, any teachers, or care providers. Good luck!

  2. hi i just feel like I’m the only sister who has a down syndrome sister. do zany of you guys feel that. i feel like we can’t get a long. some things we can do things and the next she’s hurting and hitting me and bossing me. so am i?

    1. iheartmolly – you are absolutely not alone. I have a sister with DS too and we used to fight like that when we were younger. There is a great book that answers so many questions we sibs have. It’s by Brian Skotko and Sue Levine and I’ve linked it here: http://www.amazon.com/Fasten-Your-Seatbelt-Syndrome-Brothers-ebook/dp/B00FQSD1BQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1405204258&sr=8-1&keywords=Fasten+your+seatbelt+down+syndrome. Also be sure to check out their youtube channel: https://m.youtube.com/user/downsyndromesibbook.
      We’re in this together! Jenn @talkds

  3. Hello,

    Do you plan on coming to Canada? I live in the Toronto Ontario area and have a little boy with Down Syndrome who will not eat anything that’s really solid. No chips, Cheerios etc. He can eat some stage 3 baby foods but swallows it whole and will not chew. He won’t even tolerate anything hard or solid in his mouth unless it is in some sort of sauce. He can eat small pieces or rice in sauce and the same goes for baby pasta. Any advice that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Penny Kirby
