Motherhood, Intellectual Disability and Child Protection: Characteristics of a Court Sample.
Glaun, Daphne E.; Brown, Patricia F.
Journal of Intellectual and Developmental Disability, v24 n1 p95-105 Mar 1999
A study retrospectively examined case notes and records of 12 families in which the mother had a documented intellectual disability, who were brought to court on child protection grounds. Findings indicate that the cumulative weight of stressful emotional, physical, and social factors, in combination with limited intellect, precipitated a crisis in child care. (Author/CR)
