Brief Summary:
The learning of appropriate hand washing technique through repetitive watching of a video depicting an adult with DS washing his hands will be studied.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Down Syndrome Trisomy 21 Behavioral: Watching a video Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This study is a next step in evaluating the use of videos depicting a person with DS demonstrating hand washing. The initial study demonstrated improvement in hand washing technique with a verbal explanation of hand washing technique using an Illinois Department of Public Health handout and viewing one of the handwashing videos one time. The study demonstrated a statistical significant difference between learning by viewing the handout and a video of an adult with DS washing his hands vs just viewing the handout.viewing a handout Likely due to small sample size, the study did not demonstrate statistical significance between watching the video of a person with DS washing his hands vs watching the other videos but the trend for the best improvement in handwashing technique was for the group viewing another person with DS demonstrating the handwashing. The hypothesis of this study is that repeated viewing of a video and practicing hand washing will lead to even greater improvement in hand washing technique.
