This 7-year study examined effects of the stigma of disability in terms of manifestations of stress, stressors, and stress mediators in 131 parents of children with moderate or severe intellectual disabilities at 3 age levels: children, teenagers, and adults. Parental stress was associated with "controlled affect" and "disassociation." Verbal interaction modulated stress. (DB)
