Abstract
  • Between 1977 and 1981 the author visited over 100 places providing short-term care for children who are mentally handicapped and interviewed families whose children were receiving short-term care. This book describes the development of short-term residential care, who makes use of it, parents' reactions to and opinions of the services, and how they can achieve some say in their management. Useful guidelines are provided on standards for short-term residential care staff and a chapter devoted to special fostering arrangements.
