So I have been googling and researching the use of Ginko in children with Down Syndrome and I am liking what I am reading. Megan right now is not on any vitamin supplements. We did start with the Nutrivene in August but have since stopped when I lost my scooper in October. A poor excuse I know but I didn't want to guess on the scoop size. I have just re-ordered one so we will start it up again soon. I am just worried with her blood work being redone that it might mess with it.

I came across this website through the DSTNI yahoo group and it has made me more intrigued. It talks about the use of prozac and a protocol to use. Please check it out including the videos.
Changing Minds Fouondation

Any personal info anyone might have on this good or bad please let me know. Or if you want to share any more websites or research.

Sorry, my original comment didn't make sense.
We started Angela on Ginko about 6 months ago. The first 2 months I wasn't giving her the right dose. Once I increased it to the proper amount we DID see differences in her handwriting. Something that she HATED doing she was now doing voluntarily. It's not great, but she's doing it. We also saw a sudden increase in her vocabulary and language (though I can't say it was the type of vocab or language I wanted to see increased!) I was hoping to see the biggest change in her behavior. While we DID see an improvement, it wasn't dramatic. Though to be fair, I don't think I can make that assessment until I take her off her other meds. I'm more afraid of doing THAT than I was putting her on the Ginko!

We have been doing GB since mid summer. In that short time, Ciarra's reading scores have jumped 30 points. Her math scores SIXTY points. She has had an explosion in comprehenion and in language. I believe it is in some part due to the GB and some other aspects of the Changing Minds protocl that she is on.

Megan's got 47 said...

Michelle, I joined your forum regarding the protocol and am bringing it up with my doctor. I do hope he keeps an open mind. I am also emailing my doctor at CHOP who works in the Trisomy 21 program to see if they are using this with any patients. I hope I do not get shot down.
