This paper considers the financial burden of parents caring for severely disabled children.
A model to predict parents' out-of-pocket expenses and caregiving time demands is described.
Discriminant analysis correctly classified high and low group membership for out-of-pocked expenses and caregiving time at 72 percent and 77 percent, respectively.
Expected rates were 50 percent.
Time spent caregiving was the best predictor for out-of-pocket expenses, and out-of-pocked expenses was the best predictor of caregiving time.
