This preliminary study compares the family functioning, caregiver burden, and coping abilities between mothers of 300 children with developmental disorders and mothers of 100 children with no such disorders in the Bedouin community in Israel. The mothers completed the McMaster Family Assessment Device Scale, the Caregiver Burden Index, and the Sense of Coherence Scale. Mothers of children with developmental disorders reported lower family functioning, a higher caregiver burden, and a lower sense of coherence and thus lower coping abilities than mothers of children with no disorders. The study highlights the need to provide professional support for mothers of children with developmental disorders and to develop awareness and culturally appropriate intervention programs to enhance these mothers’ coping abilities.
