This review focuses on research addressing aspects of family stress and burden over the last year. While families continue to feel some negative influence of having a child with intellectual disability or retardation, there is growing evidence that families also experience positive consequences. In addition to the broadening perspective of impact and burden, some recent research on families reflects more sophistication in methodology and sensitivity to cultural context.
