Danseco, Evangeline R.
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v44 n1 p41-52 Mar 1997
This paper examines studies on the interface of culture, parental beliefs, and childhood disability. The literature review indicated that parental beliefs about the nature and causes of disability reflected both biomedical and sociocultural views, and these beliefs on the nature and causes of disability affect beliefs about treatment and intervention.
