Predictors of Urgency of Out-of-Home Placement Needs.
Kobe, Frank H.; And Others
Mental Retardation, v29 n6 p323-28 Dec 1991
Interviews with 137 primary caregivers with developmentally disabled family members (ages 2-62) on waiting lists for out-of-home placement found that caregiver stress was a significant predictor of the urgency of placement need. Behavior problems of the disabled person were almost as important. Lack of support services was correlated with placement urgency. (JDD)
