Early Language Stimulation of Down's Syndrome Babies: a study on the optimum age to begin
Abstract:In this study we began with a concern for the marked delay in language acquisition suffered by Down's syndrome babies and how early treatment affects the subsequent observed development. 36 Down's syndrome babies were incorpored to experiment at different ages: new borns, 90 days and 180 days old babies, until eighteen months of age.
The results obtained established statistically significant differences in language acquisitions in favour of the new born group.
