dc.description.abstractThis study examined the extent to which child severity and family resources are related to parenting stress in parents of 26 young children with autism. Bivariate correlations between family resources, autism severity, and parenting stress were conducted. Results revealed a significant negative correlation between parenting stress and family resources. A significant relation was also found between autism severity and child-focused aspects of parenting stress. Severity of autism symptoms was negatively correlated with total family resources. Importance of providing parents with appropriate therapies and supports is discussed.en_US
