Abstract

The placement recommendations of 98 Professionals to parents, relating to their newborn with Down’s syndrome, were studied in respect to social variables relating to their decisions. Using a projective questionnaire with case vignettes it was found that social variables played a significant role in Professionals’ hypothetical placement recommendations to parents of a newborn with Down’s syndrome. Furthermore, thesc placement recommendations varied according to Professional categories (nurses differed from physicians and social workers) and personal attributes (age and Professional experience).
