Marty Essentials

I do not know what most Down Syndrome kids are like or if they have similar interests  or capabailites.

I do know Marty’s capabilities and interests as a 2 1/2 year old.  Marty loves to figure out the mechanics of a toy or the DVD player.  He knows what a remote is used for.  He is great at Melissa and Doug puzzles.  He loves to put things in a container and take them out again.  He has a perfected pitch whether it is a ball or something he is done with.

He loves a challenge and will stick to learning something until he has mastered it.  The very first puzzle piece he mastered he carried with him as he played which  I felt was a reminder to him that he was capable and could master a task.

He loves Elmo and music;  he laughs at the Sesame Street characters especially Grover.  He loves Sandra Boyton books ( ).

He loves his room and loves to climb.

Marty is not very verbal yet but he has mastered a great sign language library.  He uses “more”, “mother”, “please”, “all done”,  and “Elmo” the most.

He is a typical two year old in many, many ways.
