When the Parents of the Handicapped Pass On...Then What?
Gauthier, Yvon
Canadian Journal of Special Education, v9 n2 p111-14 1993
This paper describes parents' feelings, emotions, and concerns as they contemplate the future of their mentally retarded children after the parents' death. The paper notes that such parents think of death with more fear than parents of nondisabled children and that residential institutions must communicate to parents that their children will be treated with care.
