Document Type


Publication Date



In this Swedish study, 15 adults with Usher syndrome type 3 filled out two questionnaires which covered a wide range of domains related to health and social trust. Results showed poor physical and mental health and severe problems with social trust among participants. Three participants had cochlear implants, and they reported fewer problems in these areas than the others. The authors conclude that interdisciplinary strategies are required to facilitate the rehabilitation of persons with USH3 throughout their lives.
