Children with Severe Learning Disabilities: Needs, Services, and Costs.
Beecham, Jennifer; Chadwick, Oliver; Fidan, Dogan; Bernard, Sarah
Children & Society, v16 n3 p168-81 Jun 2002
Examined how services are used by children with severe learning disabilities living at home in London, England, the associated total and component costs, and parents' perceptions of their children's needs for health care. Found some evidence that costs were associated with greater children's needs as well as evidence for under-provision of formal care supports, particularly mental health services. (Author/KB)
