00001. The coefficient of multiple determination was .35744 indicating that the combination of the three independent variables explained approximately 363 percent of the variation in the dependent variable.
At the completion of step 3 in the stepwise regression analysis, the .05 limit for the inclusion of additional independent variables had been reached. Therefore, a step 4 that would have included the number of emotional symptoms experienced was not performed. The hypothesis was supported by the results of the stepwise regression analysis.
A factor analysis was performed to determine the characteristics, traits, behaviors, perceptions, and events that best describe or explain a handicapping condition for a child. Orthogonal rotation was the procedure applied in this factor analysis.
A total of eight characteristics, traits, behaviors, perceptions, and events were assessed. These items were (1) age when handicap condition was first observed, (2) age when assistance was first sought for this condition, (3) care giver rating of the quality of information received from the family of the handicapped child, (4) age when child first received instruction from care givers, (5) rating of the appropriateness of instruction received from care givers, (6) overall satisfaction by care givers with the level and quality of parental involvement, (7) age at which the handicapped child was first tested, and (8) rating of the satisfaction by care givers with the outcome of the testing.
Initial Correlation Analysis and Factor Identification
The initial correlation analysis yielded product moment coefficients meeting the inclusion criterion (>p.4) for each of the eight variables in relation to three of the other variables in each instance. The acceptable correlation coefficients for age when handicap condition was first observed, age when assistance was first sought for this condition, age when child first received instruction from care gi...
