A survey of 46 agencies providing residential support to persons with disabilities examined their capacity to support persons with disabilities who present challenging behaviors. Two independent variables (organizational stability and administrative leadership) and four dependent variables (staff structures, staff training, measurement systems, and behavioral systems) were identified. Administrative leadership best predicted the dependent measures. (Contains references and survey questionnaire.) (Author/DB)
