Psychological Distress of Parents of Infants with Down Syndrome.
Scott, Brian S.; Atkinson, Leslie; Menton, Henry L.; Bowman, Thomas
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v102 n2 p161-71 Sep 1997
Two independent surveys (in 1988 and 1991) evaluated the stress experienced by parents (total N=108) of infants with Down Syndrome compared with that experienced by other parents. Pooled data indicated significantly greater depression for the study parents. However, effect sizes were small, suggesting that parenting an infant with Down Syndrome may cause less distress than previously thought. (Author/DB)
