The Pattern of Care in Families of Adults with a Mental Handicap: A Comparison between Families of Autistic Adults and Down Syndrome Adults.
Holmes, Nan; Carr, Janet
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v21 n2 p159-76 Jun 1991
This study of 39 families with a mentally handicapped adult member found no significant differences in physical care, domestic chores, and supervision for the 20 Down's syndrome and 19 autistic subjects. The brunt of caring fell upon mothers, with fathers helping mainly with supervision. Methods of coping with behavior problems differed between the two handicapping conditions. (Author/JDD)
