DS Awareness Day 2: Why Doesn't Evie Talk Yet?

DS Awareness Day 2: Why doesn’t Evie talk yet? Kids with DS have lower muscle tone, and how that affects speaking, walking, and eating varies widely. Evie has super low muscle tone, and this includes her oral muscles. She is learning now to move her tongue and says B’s, D’s and G’s pretty well. She loves practicing funny sounds with mama. When a good song comes on the iPad, she now makes noises like she’s singing along. Songs about daddies especially get her going on a Dada monologue.
