Gardner, J. Emmett; And Others
Education and Treatment of Children, v17 n2 p185-96 May 1994
Interviews with 32 grandparents of children with disabilities indicated that grandparents were involved in such activities as baby-sitting, providing emotional and financial support for the grandchild's parents, and providing emotional and medical-related support for the grandchild. Grandparents displayed an impressive command of complex medical terminology but scarce knowledge of educational and psychological development and interventions. (JDD)
