Parents Speak Out: Facial Plastic Surgery for Children with Down Syndrome.
Goeke, Jennifer
Education and Training in Developmental Disabilities, v38 n3 p323-33 Sep 2003
This qualitative study examined comments of 250 parents of children with Down syndrome concerning facial plastic surgery as a means of improving the physical functioning, appearance, and social acceptance of these children. Most respondents viewed improvement of negative societal attitudes toward individuals with Down syndrome and futhering their children's education and self-esteem as more valuable than plastic surgery.
