Teen Regression Consultation
There has been a growing number of clinical case reports of regression in adolescents and adults with Down syndrome who have shown unexpected and severe regression in cognitive and adaptive functioning, motor function, communication skills, and behavior. In this chapter, we call this adult regression syndrome. It most commonly affects people with Down syndrome in their teens and twenties and is associated with cognitive-executive impairment, social withdrawal, loss of functional language, and previously acquired adaptive skills, lasting greater than 3 months.
If this has been happening to your child, please reach out to Dr. Jenny Kimes at DSL.
