"It is possible for a child with Down syndrome to succeed in their education and in a career later in life," explains Dr. Julia Kinder. "However, it is crucial to start teaching your baby as soon as possible, as 95% of the brain develops between birth and age 5. This is the easiest time to teach children, as thousands of new connections are forming in the brain and because children are eager to learn. I designed products to teach Ella soon after she was born, and by two and a half she was reading over 150 words. Ahead of the developmental schedule, Ella began kindergarten a year early. And even more exciting is that Ella is now successfully completing her elementary education, at her own age level, in a regular classroom – without an aide."
Understanding that Down Syndrome Awareness is also vital to the future success of children with Down syndrome – because it eliminates myths and removes barriers - Dr. Kinder developed Awareness Products to make it easy for other parents to get involved. Dr. Kinder also lectures to audiences across the country, giving accurate and inspiring information on Down syndrome.
