The Role of Parenting for the Adjustment of Children with and without Learning Disabilities: A Person-Oriented Approach
Barkauskiene, Rasa
Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, v7 n2 p1-17 2009
A person-oriented approach was used to examine the role of parenting in the associations between single learning disabilities and multiple learning disabilities and the adjustment difficulties in 8-11-year-olds. The results revealed that multiple, but not single, learning disabilities were associated with greater difficulties in emotional and behavioral domains. Children with multiple learning disabilities were overrepresented in the Negative parenting group characterized by mothers' high control and negative affection. Finally, whereas in the Negative parenting group, multiple learning disabilities were associated with high internalizing and externalizing problem behavior, in the Positive parenting group characterized by mothers' support and positive affection, no significant associations between multiple or single learning disabilities and adjustment problems were found.
