Abstract
Parenting a child with intellectual disabilities (ID) poses unique challenges that can significantly impact the psychological well-being of parents. This systematic review aims to explore the role of socio-economic status (SES) in influencing the psychological well-being of parents with intellectually disabled children. The review analyzes existing research articles that investigate the relationship between SES and parental psychological well-being, including measures of stress, depression, anxiety, and overall mental health. The findings highlight the complex interplay between SES factors and parental well-being, shedding light on the importance of addressing socio-economic disparities to support the mental health of parents with intellectually disabled children.
This study aimed to investigate the psychological well-being of parents who have intellectually disabled children, with a focus on how socio-economic status (SES) influences their well-being. The psychological well-being of parents plays a crucial role in providing optimal care and support for their children with intellectual disabilities. However, the impact of SES on parental psychological well-being in this context remains underexplored.
The findings of the study indicated that parents from different socio-economic backgrounds exhibited varying levels of psychological well-being. Parents with higher SES showed higher levels of well-being compared to those with lower SES. Factors such as financial stability, educational attainment, and access to support services appeared to contribute significantly to the differences in well-being among parents. Furthermore, the study revealed that parents with higher SES had better access to resources, including specialized educational programs, therapeutic interventions, and support networks, which positively influenced their well-being. On the other hand, parents with lower SES faced numerous challenges, including limited financial resources, inadequate access to services, and higher levels of stress, which negatively impacted their psychological well-being.
