Abstract
Children with intellectual disability learn more slowly than a typical child. Children may take longer to learn the language, develop social skills, and take care of their personal needs, such as dressing or eating. Learning will take them longer, require more repetition, and skills may need to be adapted to their learning level. Nevertheless, virtually every child is able to learn, develop and become a participating member of the community. The aim of the study is to understand the knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of Limpopo rural women in relation to intellectual disability. The targeted areas are reproductive health: antenatal, and postnatal care, and family planning; integrated management of childhood illnesses; immunization of children; and nutrition. The objectives were: To assess the level of knowledge of women towards specific health problems and services; To identify the attitudes of women towards children with intellectual disability, and the benefit of utilizing primary health care services targeting children and women; To determine the level of quality of care of primary health care services as perceived by the women in the rural communities. A survey will be conducted with rural women in Limpopo. A simple random sampling procedure will be used to select participants. An existing KAP Survey questionnaire will be modified and used to collect data which will be analysed using SPSS. In addition, four focus group discussions will be conducted, data will be analysed using thematic content analysis. Ethical issues will be observed. Ethical issues will be observed.
