Family Strengths and Needs Associated with Caring for a Person with Down Syndrome

(To read in Spanish)

Ruth Brown, PhD, is an assistant professor at Virginia Commonwealth University. She is currently recruiting participants for a research study to better understand family strengths and needs associated with caring for a person with Down Syndrome (DS) during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your participation in a brief survey will help us to learn more about the things that affect how families with a child or adult with Done Syndrome cope, hope, and adjust. 

Participants should be current parents/guardians raising a child or adult of any age with DS and are eligible to participate. The survey should take about 20-30 minutes. You will be asked to complete follow-up surveys in 2, 4, and 6 months. 

If you are interested in participating, please visit the online survey at or email our study team at with any questions.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
