Q: My great grand-daughter has down syndrome. Is there a home program for special needs? Thank you.

A: You can still apply some of the Montessori activities on the site. Your great granddaughter though may need a bit more practice and more repetition than most children. Another activity is that you can have a basket of containers that can be commonly found in the home. She can try to open and close snaps, zips, twist open bottles, use velcro, hooks etc.

This will practice her fine motor skills and she can later on apply it to real life and slowly gain independence. Regards, Daily Montessori
