Out-of-Home Placement for Children with Retardation: Family Decision Making and Satisfaction.
Blacher, Jan; Baker, Bruce L.
Family Relations, v43 n1 p10-15 Jan 1994
Interviewed 62 families that had recently placed their mentally retarded children about their experiences. Placements generally followed gradual build-up of child-related stress. Parents reported high satisfaction with placement and positive family adaptation following placement. Family experiences generally were not related to child's age, level of retardation, or behavior problems, or to size of placement facility. (Author/NB)
