|Homeschooling and Down Syndrome||Study on Development in Children & Adolescents with DS|
|Articles by Amy Dunaway||
This survey is for parents of children with Down syndrome who are between 5 and 30 years of age and will take between 30 and 45 minutes to complete; responses to questions will be anonymous. Survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/DStransitions
What is this survey about?|
Development does not always proceed through a smooth course. We are interested in whether your child with Down syndrome has experienced set-backs in development that are either temporary or long-lasting. We are also interested in knowing whether your child shows behaviors that may interfere with development. This survey will ask questions about some life experiences your child may have had, what behaviors your child shows either now or has shown in the past, and what the effects of these experiences and behaviors have been on your child's development. At the end of the survey you will have an opportunity to tell us in your own words your impression of your child's development.
