Between joy and sorrow: being a parent of a child with developmental disability

Kearney, P. M., Griffin, T.,

Academic Literature

2001

This article seeks to explore the experiences of parents who have children with significant developmental disability. Whilst parents confronted numerous difficulties, most of them appeared to manage with optimism and remarkable resourcefulness. This phenomenological interpretation provides insight and understanding into the parents’ experiences and has implications for practice, education and research in nursing.
