Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Carmen Aviles-Ortiz, the Executive Director of la Fundación Puertorriqueña Síndrome Down, commissioned us to determine the size of the Down Syndrome population on the island of Puerto Rico. This was done using previously conducted population studies and population data from the Department of Health. She also asked us to determine the needs of Down Syndrome individuals, and to analyze the adequacy of the current facilities in Puerto Rico. The necessary information for this task was gathered using questionnaires and interviews. This data was then analyzed using various statistical methods. The results will be used to acquire funding for the Foundation, as well as to expand and improve other facilities needed by Down Syndrome persons and their families across the island.
