This project looks at the feasibility of adapting a Webster-Stratton Incredible Years Parenting Group for parents of children with Learning Disabilities. Such groups are recommended for parents of children with Conduct Disorders, but parents of those with a Learning Disability (LD) are often excluded. Two parenting groups were facilitated in a South London CAMHS service and the second such group was further modified following feedback from the first group. Four carers completed the first group and six carers completed the second group. The carers were satisfied with the group and gave positive feedback. There was a significant improvement in the carers’ level of anxiety and some improvement on levels of depression. In the second group there was a significant improvement on a parenting measure. Recommendations were made for taking the programme forward, including assessing both the carers’ level of understanding of LD and its co-morbidities and assessing the children themselves. Recommendations were also made as to how the programme could further improve its accessibility. Finally it was recommended that, as the programme becomes established in this service, it is targeted towards younger children and those beginning to show challenging behaviours, in order to prevent these behaviours from becoming established.
