    It is usually assumed the OP will start their thread in the correct section. But I can move it for you, no problem.

They are people just like us, and many are far more kind and innocent than the vast majority of "normal" people I've had the misfortune of knowing.
    But I've never been able to figure out how to talk to them.

    My problem is that I'm always caught up in my own head, which is always in hyperdrive, pouring over and channelling out a never-ending stream of consciousness. I don't know what they call it, but that's not important; I can't shut down the way I think, and it's tied to how I talk to people and outwardly express myself.

    You can probably figure why this would make talking to a down-syndrome person difficult. Does anyone with experience with them have any advice that could help? Because I wish I could.
    Based on personal exprience, people with DS tend to be very friendly so naturally, they truly appreciate warmth and friendliness even from strangers. Even if there is not an opportunity for a lenghty conversation, you can smile at them, compliments them for their action or look, and appreciate them if they are providing any service as they like to feel needed as all of us...

    Since I am an INFJ myself can completelty relate to your comment of being in your own hea. The good news is that my sister perhaps better than most people is aware of this quality,and knows wheh is the best time to approach me,... since she is a huge music fan,( she remembers the lyrics of everything she listens to ) we tend to listen to music together or discuss her favorite T.V shows... Also I try not to speak to her like a child, yet I am mindful of her limitations as well. I like to think that she appreciates when I have somewhat serious conversation with her. Thanks for caring enough to ask this question..

    I don't expect anyone to agree with me. I was supposed to be a spartan. Something went wrong.
    We can exchange people for others now?? OMG I have a few people I want to try that with.

    OT:
    I feel bad for the family but I know DS people are usually pretty happy and enjoyable.

    Yeah, I've never been too good at the warmth thing. There's probably my problem.

    Thanks for the advice though. It's appreciated.

    Well, your post seems warm to me. really. You dont have to be cheesy warm... Everyone has their own way of expressing compassion. People with DS detect who is phony and who is for real. So please be who you are and they we'll see it. Promise you.

    I don't think people with Downs syndrome look funny, in all honesty I treat them exactly as I would treat everyone else (like they're worth something which they are)

    I think some people look beautiful, some plain, some ugly, some terrifying, and some, of course, humorous. So yes, I do think people with DS whom I've met look funny.
