Down syndrome

BELLA is 5 years old and has Down syndrome. Bella’s gross motor skills are well developed. She walks, runs, goes up and down the stairs without support, and throws a ball. She plays appropriately with toys and will play with her favorite toys for long periods of time. She plays with other children from her group. She enjoys musical games and songs with movement/hand motions. She says 4-5 words, responds to her name, and follows simple directions. She understands everything that is said to her. She eats independently, takes her shoes on/off independently and holds her hands out for them to be washed after meals. She helps clean up the toys after play time.
