Meyers, Judith C.; Marcenko, Maureen O.
Mental Retardation, v27 n6 p383-87 Dec 1989
Eighty-one Michigan families raising children with severe handicaps were interviewed prior to receiving a $225 monthly cash subsidy and one year later. Mothers reported significantly less family stress (particularly related to financial stress) and enhanced life satisfaction, regardless of marital status, employment status or education, child's age, or family income.
