This study reports on a survey in which 83 foster parents caring for children with disabilities were asked their opinion as to what is needed to be a good foster parent to a child with disabilities. Results showed that the personal characteristics of foster parents were important, as well as financial supports, certain skills, a range of support systems and recognitions of roles and responsibilities of foster parents.
