Grandparents as Care Givers of Children with Disabilities:
“Drs. McCallion and Janicki have edited a very important volume on grandparents raising children with disabilities. The number of custodial grandparents continues to increase with one estimate suggesting that about one in ten grandparents will raise grandchildren at some point in their lives. Due to the social conditions that precipitate grandparent care, such as HIV/AIDS, drug use, and abuse/neglect, the children in custody of grandparents may have challenging behavioral, physical, and emotional needs. This volume specifically addresses children with disabilities to highlight both the challenges for and resilience of their grandparent caregivers.”
