Larson, Sheryl A.; Lakin, K. Charlie
Journal of the Association for Persons with Severe Handicaps (JASH), v16 n1 p25-38 Spr 1991
This paper reviews 27 studies of parental attitudes on the deinstitutionalization of a family member with disabilities. Studies of existing institutional placements found high levels of satisfaction and opposition to deinstitutionalization, whereas studies of community placements found high levels of satisfaction with community placements and retrospectively reported lower satisfaction with institutional placements.
