New York Times Magazine, Zolinda Stoneman

An article in the New York Times Magazine quotes Zolinda Stoneman, director of UGA’s Institute on Human Development and Behavior. The article focuses on the changing views and practices of American families with disabled children.

“I’ve been in the field long enough to know a time that families were told that for the sake of their brothers and sisters, kids with disabilities should be institutionalized,” Stoneman said. In many cases, “that was just very misguided advice.”
