Designing Programs for Young Developmentally Disabled Children: A Family Systems Approach to Autism.
Bristol, Marie M.
Remedial and Special Education (RASE), v6 n4 p46-53 Jul-Aug 1985
The paper contrasts two assumptions about the nature of autism and discusses their implications for parent services. A deficit model of parental pathology and definition of the parent as patient is seen to lack empirical support. Growing recognition of biological etiology is discussed and alternative definitions of the parent or family as focus for intervention are pointed out. (Author/CL)
