Abstract

Interventions that promote parent and child well-being in families with children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are important, given the caregiving burden often associated with supporting children with developmental and behavioral challenges. This article summarizes a presentation made at the 2019 AAIDD annual conference and reviews evidence-based interventions that promote parenting skills, enhance caregiver well-being, and reduce child challenging behavior. The article reviews the role that behavioral and mindfulness-based interventions play in enhancing family well-being. A discussion of research gaps and future directions is included, especially as they relate to the role of technology in scaling up interventions and making them accessible to a broader audience.
