Title: Ski course of children with mental disabilities Aim of thesis: To develop a set of individual preparatory exercises for training of downhill and cornering techniques in alpine skiing for children with mental retardation. The sub-objective was to test the mastery of individual elements of skiing skills and skiing technique in several children with mental retardation who had completed a ski course Method: This is a theoretical-empirical research. A set of preparatory exercises was tested on a cohort of four children with a diagnosis according to ICD-10in the range F70- 79. Mastery of the skills was assessed using a Likert scale (1-5). Children were observed performing specified, pre-explained and demonstrated skiing skills a total of three times (at the beginning, middle and end of the ski course). Results: A set of preparatory exercises was compiled and tested on a six-day ski course. It showed that children with intellectual disabilities ranging from mild to moderate mental retardation are able to learn and, with prior experience, improve their skiing skills. The child with severe mental retardation did not acquire the skills as he was unable to accept the ski equipment and therefore did not participate in the lessons. All three children who received lessons improved in most of their skiing...

The Issue of Social Services for Families with Children with Down Syndrome
ŠRENKOVÁ, Michaela
The topic of the bachelor thesis is the issue of social services for families with children with Down syndrome as a target group for social services. The theoretical part defines the concepts related to Down syndrome and associated mental retardation, concepts related to social services, education and its interconnection with the social services system in the Czech Republic. The theoretical part of the thesis includes a list of social services and their providers that families with children can theoretically use together with other helping organisations. This part of the bachelor thesis fulfils two objectives: to map social services for families with children with Down syndrome and to map the providers of these services. The third objective of the thesis, to find out the experiences of families with social services, is fulfilled by the practical part of the bachelor thesis, which was carried out in the form of qualitative research using the method of semi-structured interviews with families with a child with Down syndrome. To achieve the results, three research questions were set: What organisations in the Czech Republic provide social services to families with a child with Down syndrome? What social services do these families actually use? Are these social services perceived by families as sufficient? The results of the survey show that families with children with Down syndrome are aware of social services and their providers and some of them use them or know that they will in the future. It is also evident that if they combine the use of social services with the services of helping organisations that focus specifically on children with Down syndrome, their service needs are currently met and the services are perceived as sufficient thanks to the complementary helping organisations.

A family caring for an adult child with a mental disability
This bachelor thesis is focused on the problematics of families who raised and are caring for an adult child with a mental disability. This work aims to lay out how parents look at the situations in their family, in what aspect their lives are either limited or enriched, whether they perceive any changes in the methods of care for their offspring and how they reflect at them. The work also focuses on the resources from which the parents draw strength to overcome the difficulties tied to raising of their offspring, and the support they receive. The theoretical part describes the categorization of people with a mental disability and how the mental disability of a child influences the situation of the family. Furthermore, it establishes the meaning of core terms used throughout the work. Qualitative research has been conducted, and it consists of forms of half-structured dialogues with six parents (out of four families) who are taking care of an adult person with a mental disability. Many changes and limitations have been found in families due to the presence of a child with a disability. Parents perceive several negatives associated with caring for a disabled child, which directly result from the nature of the disability, as well as some benefits. The presence of a mentally handicapped child was not found to affect the parents' partnership. Furthermore, it was found that an important factor for coping with difficult situations resulting from care is the support of various types that parents receive and that parents cope with difficult situations in specific ways. Research shows that parents are very worried about their child's future.

Hospitalization of Down syndrome children
Down syndrome is the most frequent genetic disorder that is present in average among one out of 700 children born alive. Every child born with Down syndrome bears in his/her cells abnormal amount of chromosome 21. The child born with Down syndrome requires different care and approach then other children because of a presence of various stages of mental retardation and affiliated diseases. The aim of this bachelor thesis is to introduce the issue of Down syndrome to the public. Furthermore, to map out parents´ satisfaction with nursing care in the hospital in which their child with Down syndrome is hospitalised and to survey the differences in nursing care of children with Down syndrome in the framework of hospitalisation at children´s department from the nurses´ point of view. This aim is reached through a qualitative research which was implemented as a half-structured interview with parents whose children have Down syndrome, and with nurses from different children´s departments. The first part of the thesis describes Down syndrome in theory. Its forms, history, characteristic traits, affiliated diseases, diagnostics and specific care in various fields are described. The practical part processes and analyses used interviews with both mentioned groups; for an analysis of the research data a method of open coding is used. The implemented interviews with parents imply a real satisfaction with hospitalisation of their children, however a dissatisfaction with the way of giving information about their child´s diagnosis of Dawn syndrome. Out of 9 mothers, 5 of them were not satisfied with the way of providing this information and they mostly complained about their husbands´ absence. Thanks to interviews with nurses, some differences in care of these children were discovered. It mostly deals with a different approach, better surveillance due to a mental retardation and more explanation and assurance whether the child understood. Even the higher rate of aggressivity of these children was discovered. Therefore, emphatic and sensitive approach is important. The conclusion of the research states higher difficulty of nursing care and satisfaction of parents with their child´s hospitalisation; there are some exceptions and there is much room for improvement on both sides. Particularly it is necessary to improve doctors´ approach to providing the parents with information about diagnosing their child with Down syndrome.
