Down Syndrome: Helping Your Child Learn to Walk and Use Other Motor Skills
Children with Down syndrome have reduced muscle tone, which can delay development of their motor skills. Children with delays may roll over, sit up, pull up, stand, and walk later than other children their age.
Encourage motor skill development through active play.
Guide your baby in playful exercises, which helps him or her learn to walk.
