Stress in immigrant families with handicapped children : a child advocacy approach.
Poor immigrant families must cope with stress stemming from loss of home and adaptation to the host county.
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.
