The rationale behind this study is to identify how effective parent support groups are in minimizing stress levels amongst mother caring for children with special speeds. Chihiro (2011), states, parents of children with disabilities can be effectively educated through parent support groups, workshops, psychological intervention or counseling if right approach or channel were utilized. Additionally, our goal is to help bring awareness to the disparities with accessing services for Latino mothers. Furthermore, Hispanic families have reported they have experienced difficulties using services because of language, communication or cultural problems with providers (Ngui and Flores, 2006). This is why it is especially important to further study what services Latino mothers find most helpful and accessible.
