Parenting a child with intellectual disability is not an easy job. The parents have stressors and stress reaction related to the child’s disability and the stigma associated with the child’s condition. The present study focused on the relationship between behavior problems and parental empowerment of children with intellectual disability. Materials and Methods: 50 parents of children with Mental Retardation and their parents were taken for the study. The Behavioral Assessment scales for Indian Children with Mental Retardation- Part: B and Parental Empowerment scale were administered. Results: There is no statistically significant relationship found between problem behavior and parental empowerment (r = -0.26). Conclusion: Parental empowerment may not be a significant factor in determining the problem behavior of intellectually disabled children. It has implicated that parent training and family based intervention programs can help in the management of behavioral problems.
