Description

This qualitative study consisted of interviewing the parents of a child who has Down syndrome, transcribing the interview, and analysis of that interview and acquisition of results. The interview process aimed to answer two main questions, How does the parent make sense of the experience of having a child with Down syndrome? and What is the parents‘ story with regard to living with a child with Down syndrome?

After transcribing the interview verbatim, I coded the interview. Once the coding and analysis of the interview was complete, interpretation began and patterns emerged. A final assertion was made about the family‘s experience.
