The link below takes you to a recording of a webinar presented by Dr. Brian Chicoine called "Decline in Skills." People with Down syndrome may have a decline in skills for a variety of reasons. Much of the focus has been on Alzheimer's disease but there are many causes, most of which are potentially reversible. Dr. Chicoine discusses this topic in the webinar which was hosted by the National Down Syndrome Congress.
