Stress in immigrant families with handicapped children: a child advocacy approach.

Author information

Department of Psychology, Montclair State College, Upper Montclair, N.J.


Poor immigrant families must cope with stress stemming from loss of home and adaptation to the host country. Those with handicapped children are also burdened with a parallel set of stressors in adapting to the handicap in an alien environment that may include a complex service system. Implications for practice are discussed with particular emphasis on advocacy to enhance delivery of services.
