Brodin, Jane; Millde, Kristina
The report describes three preschool Swedish children with osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bones) and the psychosocial support families require from society. Introductory sections explain the condition, review international research on brittle bones, consider the life situation of children with brittle bones, and examine societal support for children with mobility impairments including financial help and habilitation. Much of the paper presents findings from interviews with the three families covering such areas as community support, medical support, psychosocial support, the child's awareness of the handicap, and daily activities. Includes 20 references. (DB)
