Down syndrome; People with mental disabilities--Social aspects; Behavior modification


This paper deals with a twenty-five year old Down's Syndrome woman, who seems to be going through a regressive stage in life. The problem stems from the lack of motivation exhibited by the individual in her ability to move, complete tasks and enter into activities. The question arises as to whether the behaviors exhibited are a result of a physical change or whether they are learned behaviors as a result of her present environment.
