Glidden, Laraine Masters; Cahill, Brigid M.
Adoption Quarterly, v1 n3 p27-43 1998
Used case-by-case matching and regression techniques to compare outcomes for parents and families who adopted children with Down syndrome and those who adopted children with other developmental disabilities. Found successful parent and family functioning, regardless of the child's disabilities. The positive stereotype for Down syndrome was not supported. (Author)
