About this Research Topic
Parents and caregivers of students with (versus without) disabilities have higher levels of stress. In fact, extant literature suggests that the global pandemic has exacerbated the well-being of families of children with disabilities. Prior to the pandemic, parental well-being was associated with student’s receipt of services and parental advocacy responsibility. In addition, research on culturally and linguistically diverse families noted an increased negative impact on academic achievement among this population. the aim of this research topic is to examine how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected service receipt for students with disabilities or its impact on well-being of caregivers among culturally and linguistically diverse families.
This Research Topic aims to contribute to our understanding of culturally and linguistically diverse families by examining changes during the COVID-19 pandemic associated with service receipt for students with disabilities. In addition, this research topic identifies how the changes due to COVID-19 have affected the well-being of families care for a student with a disability.
