Happy Down Syndrome Awareness Month!
To honor this month, let’s talk about the language profile of individuals with Down syndrome.

Someone once told me, “If you’ve met one person with Down syndrome, you’ve met one person with Down syndrome,” which is completely powerful and true.
SLPs can support people with Down syndrome in many ways and in many areas. Let’s go!
