Abstract

Children with Down syndrome have language impairments that lead to an inability to produce a good language for communication. This problem was found from the results of early observations in the learning process at school. Children with Down syndrome find it difficult to pronounce the correct articulation when communicating and have difficulty responding or replying conversations. Problems with language disorders in children with Down syndrome can be overcome by providing various media to support language ability of children with Down syndrome in developing their skill. In addition, individual approaches taken by parents and teachers also an important role in practicing the language development of children with Down syndrome. The method used is qualitative by using interview and observation techniques.
