The first stage of research focused on people with Down syndrome is complete!

In cooperation with the community of families and people with Down syndrome, we are conducting research in these weeks. The first stage was focused on public attitudes towards people with Down syndrome, and the aim was not only to map attitudes, but to try to identify barriers and "open doors" in the perception of these people by the public.

Research results indicate that we perceive people with Down syndrome rather positively. Positive stereotypes are a good opportunity for communication and rapprochement, but it should be considered whether they also have an unspoken negative side. In this way, for example, we can see people with Down syndrome as cheerful, good and friendly, but at the same time we are also talking about their incompleteness (We don't want to see their anger, sadness, jealousy) and their weaker equipment for life (naively good, even childish).
