Children with Down syndrome have an extra copy of chromosome 21, one of the 46 chromosomes that are typically present in newborns. The development of the child's body and brain is altered as a result of the extra chromosome, posing both mental and physical difficulties.
Learning ability can be impacted by down syndrome in several ways. Speech and motor skill deficits might be a result of mild to moderate intellectual disability. Handwriting and other small-muscle tasks will probably be impacted.
There are several strategies used for our friends with the moderate syndrome to help them in the classroom. Some of the major ones are appropriate and prepared work environments where the child is comfortable with the appropriate height, back support, and foot support as our friends often experience muscle fatigue.
Another important strategy to keep in mind is to provide visual aids for concepts as our friends are visual learners and benefit from demonstrations, pictures, and illustrations.
Letting them find their own pace for subjects as it suits them is also very important as it gives them some freedom and control and keeps them from getting frustrated with coursework.
