DS Survey Opportunity for Dads

Perhaps some of the DADS groups can help with this survey opportunity for Down syndrome research from the Univ. of South Carolina School of Medicine. This survey is looking for fathers of kids with Down syndrome, and fathers of kids with autism.

The objectives of this study are:
• To compare and contrast need of fathers of children with autism with the needs of fathers of children with Down syndrome
• To identify needs that are not being met by healthcare providers
• Identify how healthcare providers, specifically genetic counselors, can better meet fathers’ needs
• To raise awareness for fathers needs among healthcare providers

The survey should take about 10 minutes. Click here to take the survey.
