Sammanfattning

Background:*The aim of the present study was to compare mothers’ and fathers’ involvement in paid work and child-care in families of children with ID and control families and to test if differences in well-being between mothers and fathers of children with ID can be explained by gender differences in involvement in paid work and child-care. *Method:* Mothers and fathers of 179 children with ID and 196 typically developing children answered mailed surveys on their involvement in paid work, child-care tasks and well-being. Only two-parent families were included *Results: *The results showed main effects for gender of the parent and presence of a child with ID on involvement in paid work and well-being. Interaction effects indicated that mothers of children with ID were more affected than fathers in their participation in paid work and well-being. Gender differences in level of involvement in paid work and child-care explained 5% of the difference in well-being between mothers and fathers of children with ID. *Conclusions: *Further research is needed on the relation between gender, involvement in paid work, child-care and well-being in families of children with ID. However the results suggest that there is a positive relation between level of participation in paid work and well-being for both mothers and fathers.
