Grandparents' Adjustment to Grandchildren with Disabilities.
Scherman, Avraham; And Others
Educational Gerontology, v21 n3 p261-73 Apr-May 1995
Interviews with 32 grandparents of children with disabilities found that few knew in advance about the disability. Most provided emotional and financial support; they were concerned about their grandchild's future and the stress experienced by the child's parents. They received support from family more than from support groups or counseling. (SK)
