Re: behavior problems(yelling) need help!

Hi there! Our son will be a month old next month, but we're trying to get a jump start on the communicating. I just ordered a book called Communication Skills in Children with Down Syndrome - A Guide for Parents. It's put out by WOODBINE HOUSE I was given Babies with Down Sydrome by WOODBINE when Owen was born and it's awesome. Our Early Intervention helper that comes twice a week has been teaching us basic sign language since he was about nine months. I don't know that he's learned any of it yet, but we'll continue and he should pick it up. My cousins' son has Autism and doesn't speak yet (he's three), and they've done really well signing. It's just a couple of ideas for ya. Best Wishes & God bless!
