Study: Many Parents of Children with Disabilities Don’t Make Care Plans

A recent study conducted by Meghan Burke, a professor of special education at the University of Illinois, found that fewer than half of parents of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities make long-term plans about who will take over their child’s care if the parent or other relative providing care dies or becomes incapacitated.

The study has been accepted for publication in the April edition of the journal Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
