Cole, David A.; Meyer, Luanna H.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v93 n4 p380-87 Jan 1989
The study examined factors influencing the decision of 103 families concerning placement of their severely retarded child. Among findings were that child-related stressors were negatively related to parents' plans for keeping the child at home, and that families with high levels of internal resources were more apt to plan to keep the child at home.
