Title

A Study of Nigerian Families Who Have a Family Member with Down Syndrome.

Abstract

The Family Quality of Life Survey (FQOLS) (Brown et al., 2006), was administered to a group of 31 families who have children with Down syndrome enrolled at a community-based centre in Nigeria. Ideas on how families perceive services for their children, and the extent to which families are coping, are discussed. Suggestions are made for effective policy and practice and for enhanced understanding of disabilities by the society.
