Out-of-Home Placement for Children with Mental Retardation: Dimensions of Family Involvement.
Baker, Bruce L.; Blacher, Jan B.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v98 n3 p368-77 Nov 1993
Interviews with 62 families who had placed their children with mental retardation in residential placement reflected high involvement with their children, with 81% of families visiting monthly. There was marginal evidence for a lessening of involvement over time. Family involvement was most strongly related with facility characteristics, especially opportunities for involvement in the facility. (Author/JDD)
