Needs and Coping Abilities in Families of Children with Developmental Disabilities.
Kornblatt, Elayne S.; Heinrich, Janet
Mental Retardation, v23 n1 p13-19 Feb 1985
Interviews with 24 families of deinstitutionalized developmentally disabled children revealed that 83 percent expressed high-level need for care and 67 percent were coping at a low level. Inner-city families most often expressed high-intensity needs and decreased coping ability, as did families of patients of younger age groups. (CL)
