Some few results and conclusions are picked out in the article below. Parents' comments show some recurrent features: counselling must be offered and should be offered immediately after confirmed diagnosis, there is a need for psychological support at an early time, for qualified advisers, for written information to be distributed, and for co-operation between advisers of the family.
