Quirky things

Just a couple quirky things about children with Down syndrome that I wanted to share. I don’t know if all of these things have been studied thoroughly, but we did talk about them at the Sie Center, and they’re the experts!

1) Children with Down syndrome tend to be very visual learners and, as a result, many read earlier than their typical peers.

2) Children with Down syndrome (I think this is babies in particular but I’m not sure) spend more time than average looking at faces. I found this especially interesting since studies show that children with Autism spend less time than average looking at faces.

3) Children with Down syndrome are more likely to be left handed. Random, huh? I’m very interested to see if Daniel turns out to be left handed since my mother in law and Kalena are lefties.

And now you’ve learned something new for today.
