Bristol, Marie M.
Journal of the Division for Early Childhood, v11 n2 p135-42 1987
Critical assumptions affecting the design of research and intervention for single-parent, mother-headed families of handicapped children involve: extent of father involvement; contribution to child-rearing of persons other than parents; socioeconomic differences between one-parent and two-parent families; heterogeneity of single-parent families; single-parenting of a handicapped child; and the deficit model of "broken homes."
