Lehmann, Jean P.
Career Development for Exceptional Individuals, v21 n2 p129-43 Fall 1998
This qualitative study interviewed 40 mothers of adolescents with either severe disabilities or those enrolled in cooperative-education (vocational) programs. Mothers of adolescents with disabilities reported they were active as advocates and protectors of their children and assisted with their children's community integration. Mothers of vocational students described their support actions as minimal; they desired more involvement. (Author/DB)
