Parental and family well-being in families of children with down syndrome : a comparative study.
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a child with Down syndrome on the individual functioning of both parents, marital functioning, and family functioning.
Thirty-four families of children with Down syndrome were compared to 41 families with nondisabled children.
Mothers and fathers in both groups completed a series of self-report measures.
No significant differences were obtained between the two groups of families on any of the measures of individual, marital, or family functioning.
