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.
