Parental Attitudes toward Their Child with a Disability: Implications for Rehabilitation Counselors.
Gilbride, Dennis D.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v36 n3 p139-50 Mar 1993
Examined attitudes of parents (n=93) who had a child with a disability. Found that parents of children with disabilities who held more positive attitudes had higher vocational and social expectations for their children. Findings suggest that professionals working with families should take special care in assessing parents' beliefs about their capacity to cope with their child's needs. (NB)
