Technical Report on a Research Strategy for Investigating the Service Needs of Developmentally Disabled Children.
Suelzle, Marijean; Keenan, Vincent
The paper reports on a strategy for investigating parental choice of services for developmentally disabled children in geographical areas with complex populations and delivery systems. The study is based on a prototype conducted in an Illinois county including urban, suburban, and rural populations. The prototype is described: a mail survey questionnaire of all consenting parents in the county and an analysis of community services support networks; next a strategy is developed for a more complex service using Cook County (including Chicago) as a case study exemplar.
