PSYCHOLOGICAL STRESS IN PEOPLE WITH DUAL SENSORY IMPAIRMENT THROUGH USHER SYNDROME TYPE II
This study measured stress in people with Usher syndrome type II (USH2) and the influence of personal variables such as age, gender, and employment. Two questionnaires were filled out by 262 people with USH2. Results indicated that people with USH2 have a higher risk of experiencing stress, particularly in regard to orientation and mobility, chronic worry, and social isolation. The authors note the need for rehabilitation services to reduce stress in people with USH2, especially older, female, and unemployed people.
