Llewellyn, Gwynnyth; McConnell, David; Honey, Anne; Mayes, Rachel; Russo, Domenica
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v24 n6 p405-31 Nov-Dec 2003
This study evaluated a home-based intervention for parents with intellectual disability to promote child health and home safety in the preschool years. The intervention improved parents' ability to recognize home dangers and to handle emergencies, increased their knowledge about illness and medicines, and increased the number of safety precautions parents implemented. All gains were maintained at 3 months' post-intervention. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
