Krauss, Marty Wyngaarden; And Others
Journal of Early Intervention, v17 n1 p8-20 Win 1993
This study of 150 mothers of infants and toddlers with disabilities found that participants in professionally organized parent groups reported larger increases in the size and helpfulness of their social support networks than did nonparticipants. Intensity of participation was associated with both positive and negative outcomes for maternal functioning and social support. (Author/JDD)
