The aim was to study stress and coping between parent caregivers of children with cerebral palsy and ADHD children. 120 parent caregivers, of them 30 male and 30 female parent caregivers having children with cerebral palsy and 30 male and 30 female parent caregivers having children with ADHD were considered for the study. The male parent caregiver’s age ranged between 28-40years and the female parent caregiver’s age ranged between 22-30 years. The disabled children age ranged between 7-12 years. A between group research design with purposive sampling technique was opted for the study. After obtaining socio-demographic details the caregivers were administered Parenting Stress Index (Short Form) and Coping Checklist. The data was subjected to‘t’ test to find the significant difference between the two sample groups. Results revealed that there was significant difference in stress and coping between caregivers of cerebral palsy children and caregivers of ADHD children.
