Description

The purpose of this research was to understand the selective language development of individuals with Moebius syndrome and learn how to complete qualitative research. I gained knowledge about an individual’s experience growing up with Moebius syndrome and compared it to existing literature. After IRB approval and signed consent, I conducted an interview and recorded it using audiotape. I then wrote down the interview verbatim to collect data. I used this data to create codes and sub codes where five patterns emerged. Analyzing these patterns allowed for the following assertion to be created regarding an individual’s experience growing up with Moebius syndrome: In addition to obtaining appropriate intervention for speech and language development, implementing early awareness, and creating relationships with individuals with similar disabilities are important aspects of building and maintaining high self-esteem.
