dc.description.abstractDown syndrome is one of the most common causes of developmental disability in the United States, affecting 1 in approximately 700 live births (Xanthopoulous et al. 2017). It is a neurogenetic disorder that is affecting growth, development and social participation through a lifespan. It is caused by the presence of a full third copy of chromosome 21 or part of it (Macak & Memisevic, 2008). It is this intention of this doctoral project to provide an occupational therapy program that focuses on cooking skills for adolescents with Down syndrome. Project Khushi is to be part of Gigi’s Playhouse, an already established Down syndrome Achievement Center. This doctoral project will explore the background of the problem, the theoretical and evidence-based literature, a description of the proposed problem, evaluation plans, funding plans, and dissemination plans. Additionally, samples of recipes and program manuals are included to support future implementation.en_US
