Description

An individual who has an exceptionality has a mental or physical impairment that hinders one or more daily activities. Although some research has been done in this area, the impacts that exceptionalities can have on families is complex and unique for each family. Exceptionalities not only impact the individual who has the impairment but also impacts their family members daily. My research study aims to discover how exceptionalities can impact families and their daily lives, whether that be physically, emotionally, or mentally. Some of the areas that my research on families who have a member or members with an exceptionality includes the overall effects on daily living, stress levels, comfort levels, and the varying services provided for the individual with an exceptionality.
