Family Support and Disabilities: An Annotated Bibliography.
Schultze, Katie; And Others
This annotated bibliography on family support services for families of individuals with disabilities lists 115 print resources published from 1979 through 1994. Most references were chosen for inclusion on the basis of addressing the issue of "whatever it takes" to aid families in caring for an individual with a disability and avoiding placing the individual into a nonfamily setting. Each entry provides the author, title, key words to describe the material, and a brief description. Listings are alphabetical by author within each of four chapters. Chapter 1 lists 14 references from the family support literature not directly related to disability. Chapter 2 includes 25 listings on the personal and interpersonal lives of family members, including relationships with formal and informal support persons. Chapter 3, with 54 references, reviews literature on the service system for families and public policy related to family support. Chapter 4 lists 22 resources that contain descriptions and some evaluations of specific family support programs or services that are or have been in operation. An author index and a subject index are provided. (CR)
