Dukmak, Samir
Journal of Intellectual & Developmental Disability, v34 n4 p324-328 Dec 2009
Background: This research investigated the impact that children with intellectual disability in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) may have on their families. Method: Sixty-three parents completed three scales related to parent stress, ways of coping, and parenting satisfaction. Results: There were significant relationships between emotional-focused coping and family adaptation and between problem-focused coping and parenting satisfaction. There were no significant relationships between other predictor and outcome measures. Conclusion: This research advances our understanding of family responses to a child with intellectual disability in Arab cultures.
