Why does she hold the spoon like that?
The distribution of IQ among Down Syndrome patients is similar in its bell shape to the normal population; however, the average is shifted by 50 points downward (in pure forms of Down Syndrome). A relative Down Syndrome genius can pass the borderline retarded range and match the low average IQ range. However, educators dealing with Down Syndrome kids stress that IQ is not a good measure of mental performance among these children As such, the presence of Down Syndrome doesn't necessitate the holding of spoons like that. Furthermore, Down Syndrome kids are just as lovable as a normal child.
Just look at this child, for example.
