    downs syndrome behavior

    downs syndrome behavior my son has been talking to himself after he has a huge fit and has to be hold down until he is calm. his fits doesnt happen much but when it does its a big screaming and seems like he's ready to hit back. But the talking to what i think to someone that is not there is becoming more frequently. Any idea what i can do

    down syndrome behavior

    My 5 year does a lot of pushing and hitting to her friends at school. (for no reason). Any advice on how to help her not do that?

    Re: down syndrome behavior

    My daughter did this also when she was younger. I do think there was a reason and it was because she wanted to interact with them but wasn't sure how. Also they could not understand her when she tried to talk to them. My daughter had an aide who would tell her that hurt the other child and made her say sorry. They would tell her to use her words and help her say Hi or Please or whatever fit the situation. She is now 11 years old and the only thing that has come up recently was her putting her feet out to trip a boy that walked by. I think we may be entering another phase but I believe it may just include the boys!!
