I am pretty sure this wasn’t written with people who have Down syndrome in mind but I bet the same benefits apply to them as well.  We spend a lot of time trying to teach our kids with old school flash cards or high-tech apps.  Let’s not forget about the benefit of good old-fashioned exercise and what it does for the body and the BRAIN!
