The usefulness and validity of the Infant-Toddler and Early Childhood versions of the HOME Inventory were examined for 20 infants and 28 preschool age children with moderate to severe orthopedic disabilities. Families were administered the standard version of the Inventory and a version modified to fit the special needs of children with orthopedic impairments. Scores for the families were similar to those observed in the normative sample for the HOME. HOME scores showed moderate correlations with maternal education, low to moderate correlations with the social support available to families, but little relation to stressful life events. Relations with social support differed somewhat as a function of the child's age. HOME scores also showed low to moderate correlations with adaptive behavior, but correlations with IQ were significant only for preschool age children.
