Description

Due to COVID-19 parents have been thrown into the role of teacher, tutor, playmate, and parent. For parents of children with communication disabilities, they may also feel like they have to become a speech-language pathologist. We are in a period when parents have a higher desire to receive help, but there is less help being given by social service providers. This study seeks to investigate the stress levels of parents with children who have been diagnosed with a communication disorder and if these parents feel supported by their child(ren)’s speech-language pathologist during COVID-19. This will be determined using a simple survey containing 56 questions, 18 of which are from the Parental Stress Scale. The purpose of this study is for speech-language pathologists to better understand parental needs and continue to devise plans to better assist parents during these difficult times.
