Moore, Judith A.; McLaughlin, John F.
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v8 n3 p98-105 Fall 1988

These children incur direct and indirect medical costs, and existing private and public resources leave gaps in payment and service delivery. New systems are necessary to ensure coordinated community care for all children. (Author/JDD)
