Sandy Magaña and Brian Grossman from the FSRTC are co-editors of a special issue of the Journal of Family Social Work.  The special issue is, “Family Support of Disabilities Across the Life Course.” The four articles by the FSRTC team have been published online ahead of the special issue.  We are not able to share the full text of the articles on this forum, however, you can make an individual  request for a copy.  The full issue is forthcoming later this Fall.  Below are links to the abstracts of the articles published online.
