Abstract

This article discusses the behavior of children with Down syndrome who have difficulty concentrating and obsessive-compulsivity, characteristics of Down syndrome children, factors that cause Down syndrome children, problems with Down syndrome sufferers and cognitive and behavioral problems. The development of a child with Down Syndrome is certainly different from the development of a healthy child. Excessive expression of chromosomes leads to a decrease in the number of nerves in the central nervous system, delayed myelination, disruption of cell cycle regulation, and causes excessive protein production and abnormal neurotransmission. Problems for people with Down syndrome are hearing problems and impaired vision, congenital heart disease, and growth problems when they were babies. The tendency for psychological and mental disorders in children with Down syndrome can cause compulsive obsession. Obsession is a thought or image that cannot be prevented and continues to exist in a person's consciousness even if he views it as something unpleasant and wants to avoid. A compulsion is a stereotypical act that prompts a person to repeat the action.
