Dyadic Analysis of Parenting Determinants among Early Intervention Families

This analysis utilized the actor-partner interdependence model (APIM) to investigate determinants of mother and father involvement among families of children previously diagnosed with disabilities participating in a state-run early intervention program. Actor effects were found from parenting self-efficacy (PSE) and parental role salience for both mothers and fathers. One partner effect was found from mother couple relationship quality on father involvement.
