I was trying to come up with something really profound to share about Down syndrome and memory. I'm not sure it is profound but this article is interesting. You can read it if you'd like. This is a topic that I'd love to learn more about. It has such a huge impact on Riley's life and how he not only functions in school but really it impacts how he learns everything for the rest of his life.
Riley's memory is a interesting thing. He remembers really random things and really random times. He is amazing with names. He may ask you 45 times but once he has it he will always know your name. Then there are the short term issue where you can work on a math problem with him, he solves it and 100% knows the answer and then between solving it and writing the correct number on the line he will totally forget the answer. It is a FRUSTRATING thing to help him with when you know he knows but he really doesn't and then you have to start the whole process over.
And now you know while all good homework sessions at our house start with a glass of something.
