Effects of an Early Intervention Program on Stress and Teaching Ability of Single Mothers of Young Multiply Impaired Children.
Brown, Nancy L.; Bhavnagri, Navaz
This study examined effects of participation by single mothers (n=23) of young children with multiple disabilities in an early intervention program. It evaluated the mothers' perceived stress in child rearing, perceived ability to teach their children, and any correlation between parental stress and teaching capability. The mothers in the program and a comparable control group were given the Parenting Stress Index/Short Form and the Parent As A Teacher Inventory. The study found that the mothers who participated in the early intervention program perceived less stress in parenting than those who did not participate and displayed a more positive attitude toward teaching their children. Additionally, an inverse relationship between stress and teaching ability was found. (Contains 25 references. (Author/CR)
