Barlow, Julie; Cullen, Lesley
Early Child Development and Care, v161 p93-105 Apr 2000
A pilot study tested an intervention to provide basic skills of touch therapy to parents of 13 children with disabilities. Post-intervention interviews indicated that both parents and children found touch therapy enjoyable. Parents felt more confident in their own abilities and felt closer to their child. Children had improved sleep patterns, more relaxed muscles, and improved bowel functioning. (Author/KB)
