Psychological Effects of Parenting Stress on Parents of Autistic Children. Brief Report.
Wolf, Lucille C.; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v19 n1 p157-66 Mar 1989
The study found greater stress for 57 parents of children with autism than for 60 parents of Down Syndrome children and 121 parents of normal children. Mothers demonstrated greater depressive symptoms than mothers of average children. Social support lessened the impact of parenting stress, suggesting the need for more counseling and support services. (DB)
