The Family Environment of the Learning Disabled Child: An Objective Description.
Zevon, Michael A.; And Others
The study investigated the family environment of 19 noninstitutionalized learning disabled children (mean age 12 years). Parents of Ss completed a demographic data form and the Family Environment Scale (FES), a published inventory which assesses the social climate of a family. A major finding was the lack of any significant stress or disorder. Families were characterized by a substantially below average score on conflict, by a strong emphasis on ethical and religious values, by a below average emphasis on active recreation, and by a moderate emphasis on family cohesion and support. The mean incongruence score indicated a greater agreement in perceived family climate than was typical of the standardization sample. FES profiles are appended. (SB)
