Dumas, Jean E.; And Others
Exceptionality: A Research Journal, v2 n2 p97-110 1991
This study of parenting stress, child behavior, and dysphoria among 150 families found that parents of children with autism and behavior disorders reported more stress than parents of Down's syndrome or nondisabled children. Mothers of Down's syndrome children did not differ from mothers of nondisabled children on any measures. No major age or gender effects were found. (PB)
