Authors: Olawale, O. A., Deih, A. N., & Yaadar, R. K.
Abstract: Psychological stress associated with cerebral palsy (CP) is known to be one of the most depressing conditions of families. In the traditional African society, some peculiar factors may contribute to the stress. This paper highlights the high levels of stress experienced by many families in dealing with a child born with a disability. The focus of the paper is specifically on the impact of children with cerebral palsy on families in Accra, Ghana. Factors associated with the impact of cerebral palsy on parenting stress include increased care-giving demands, low maternal education and ethnic background.
