Abstract
Attention deficit hyperkinetic disorder (ADHD), Pervasive developmental
disorder (PDD) and Learning Disability (LD) are common childhood psychiatric disorders. Such
a diagnosis in the child brings about a state of disequilibrium in the family causing increased
parental stress. In a developing country like India, mothers assume the care-giving role of the
family. This stress often puts them at an increased risk for psychiatric disorders. However, there
has been no study in India assessing the levels of anxiety and depression in mothers of these
children.

Key words: ADHD, PDD, LD, Anxiety, Depression, maternal stress.
