Erickson, Marji; Upshur, Carole C.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v94 n3 p250-58 Nov 1989
Mothers (N=202) of infants with Down syndrome, motor impairment, developmental delay, or no known disabilities were surveyed. Significant differences among the four groups were found on difficulty of caretaking and time devoted to caretaking; number of tasks with which fathers helped; and satisfaction with support from family, friends, and community groups.
