There are several children having Down syndrome who have completed school and gone to University. In the earlier days everyone thought that Intelligence is fixed. It is not so. With considerable training we can improve. Intelligence again consists of reasoning, memory , multiple intelligences like musical, mathematical, interpersonal, physical, social , emotional et. As the primary caretaker you also have to know that your child would improve with therapy and being in an inclusive school if possible. Speech , occupational and physical therapy would Help a lot. Physical therapy would be needed as your child would have decreased muscle tone. The milestones would be delayed but with patience and love you can teach him to live his daily life in a harmonious manner. Teaching relational skills, reasoning , problem solving through daily life examples, games, video games, activities would help. You may use puzzles and board games / indoor games to stimulate the cognitive thinking and reasoning. Your child deserves all the encouragement and positive atmosphere. All the best.
