Beckman, Paula J.; Pokorni, Judith L.
Journal of Special Education, v22 n1 p55-65 Spr 1988
Families of 44 preterm infants were studied for two years, and results showed changes over time in the amount of stress reported, as child-related problems changed. No changes were reported in the amount of social support received by parents. Factors involved in predicting stress also changed over time. (Author/JDD)
