Children with a developmental disability are at a substantially greater risk, when compared to their typically developing peers, of showing a variety of emotional and behavioral problems. These problems can have a profound impact on the child’s and family’s life course. Child, parenting, and family factors have all been implicated in the development and maintenance of these problems, but there is evidence that improving parenting practices can lead to a reduction in child problem behaviors, improvements in child adaptive skills, and enhanced parental adjustment and relationship quality. This chapter describes a system of parenting support, known as Stepping Stones Triple P (SSTP), for families of children with a disability. Since evidence has accumulated for the efficacy of the interventions that comprise the SSTP system, recommendations for integrating SSTP into existing services are provided. Current and future research directions are also briefly outlined.
