Abstract:

The study compared 55 families with 2 moderatly to severely handicapped children, with 55 families with a single handicapped child. Comparisons were made for family characteristics and relative effectiveness of two intrventions (increased service intensity and parent involvement). Families with two handicapped children had significantly lower income and higher paternal unemployment, were more likely to be on public assistance, but were more likely to see themselves as close to their ideal. While greater intensity of services produced little differential impact on families of one versus two handicapped children, parent intervention programs appeared to have particular value for families with two handicapped children. Implications for professionals working with such families are drawn. Contains 16 references and 5 tables. (Db).
