Dual Diagnosed Down Syndrome and Autism
Dual Diagnosed Down Syndrome and Autism

My son Marco Cabrera was recently diagnosed with Dual Down Syndrome and Autism, He has opened my eyes more to the help needed to all with children and adults that need proper therapy. Marco is a funny little boy soon to turn 13 years old. He likes music and dances in circles to his favorites. He loves the music of Michael Bubble, Inxs, Black Sabbath. He is a Rock and Roller. Ha. He recently started baby babble sounds along with clapping his hands a lot. It’s so cute and gives us hope he will learn to speak. His favorite thing he likes is water. Hurry summer so Marco can go into the pool. Love to all.
