Blackard, M. Kay; Barsh, Elizabeth T.
Journal of the Association for the Severely Handicapped (JASH), v7 n2 p62-70 Sum 1982
Significant differences were found between parents and professionals on the impact of severely handicapped children on their families. Professionals overestimated the child's negative impact on family relationship as well as community rejection and lack of support. They underestimated parents' ability to use appropriate teaching and behavior management techniques in the home. (Author/CL)
