    Talking Would like some real answers

    I have an 11 year old grandson with Down Syndrome. He uses the bathroom to urinate, but not for bowel movements. He also doesn't seem to have the ability to carry out a conversation.
    He will answer questions with yes, no or oh sure.

    Is this normal?

    It could be depending on his level of impairment. Is he in a program of any kind?
