Consideration of out-of-home placement among Israeli Jewish and Arab parents of children with disabilities

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article is based on a secondary analysis of a random sample of 512 Israeli parents of children with disabilities (ages 3-17) regarding their consideration of out-of-home placement. Major findings showed that Arab parents reported greater levels of personal and family burden compared to Jewish parents. Despite that fact, Arab parents rarely considered out-of-home placement. In addition, parents whose children utilized more services reported a greater burden of care than those who utilized fewer services. Findings are discussed with respect to future research and policy implications.
