Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v19 n4 p501-09 Dec 1989
Psychological distress, marital satisfaction, family adaptability, and cohesion are explored in 41 families with mentally retarded (MR) institutionalized youth and 38 comparison families. Multivariate analyses found no differences between groups, but univariate analyses revealed greater cohesion in families with MR offspring and stressed the importance of adaptability in understanding family functioning.
