Meadow-Orlans, Kathryn P.; Sass-Lehrer, Marilyn
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v15 n3 p314-34 Fall 1995
This article outlines principles of support services for families of children with disabilities. It then considers characteristics of parents of young children who are deaf/hard of hearing (e.g., gender, hearing status, socioeconomic status, and cultural/linguistic status) and child characteristics (age at diagnosis, hearing level, and additional disabilities) that help to shape dimensions of individualized family plans.
