Education and Training in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, v32 n1 p21-31 Mar 1997
The family adjustment of parents (N=117) of young adults with mental retardation to their son/daughter's initial entry into supported employment was evaluated using the Resiliency Model of Family Stress Adjustment and Adaptation as an analytical framework. Results indicated that family strength dimensions are related to family adaptation and that there are families in need of support services. (Author/DB)
