This study examined the contributions of child adaptive behavior, etiology of developmental disability, parent perception of language development, and assignment to augmented or non-augmented language intervention on parent stress. Findings indicate that both child characteristics and parent perceptions contribute to parent stress. However, assignment to an augmented language intervention, which included the use of a speech generating device (SGD), did not have any positive or negative effect on parent stress. Results of this study are relevant to clinicians attempting the weigh the possible effects of specific early intervention techniques on the family system.
