Assessing Placement Tendency in Families with Children Who Have Severe Handicaps.
Blacher, Jan
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v11 n4 p349-59 1990
Parents of 84 severely retarded children, ages 2-8, were interviewed over a 2-year period, and their thoughts and actions regarding out-of-home placement for their child were assessed. Results indicate linear trends in placement tendency. From initial consideration of placement, it may be one to two years until the act of placement is completed. (Author/JDD)
