Purpose: The purpose of the study is to explore mothers' perceptions of caregiving for the child with IDD, especially, the categories, competencies and skills that are relevant and effective. According to the literature 61% of persons with IDD are living at home, however there is no literature addressing mothers' perceptions and competencies in caregiving for these individuals. Methods: A convenience sample of 30 Pakistani Muslim mothers from a local self help group in Illinois will complete a 30 item Likert scale questionnaire (Hewitt 1998) identifying commonly used categories(Personal Caregiving; Advocacy; Communication and Self Perception), ten competencies and skills relevant to care for people with IDD. Participants will discuss their situations in focus group interviews with the investigators both for quantative and qualitative data. Gaps within the data will be identified using chi square. Data analysis will support the validity and reliability of the questionnaire. Scores for the categories will be obtained, then the associations between three categories and the self perception concept will be analyzed using Pearson's correlation and regression. Results: The study will demonstrate the relevancy of the categories and competencies, as well as the validity and reliability of the competencies and skills tool for mothers. Also, this study will identify gaps and additional caregiving competencies and skills identified by the mothers of children with IDD. Conclusion: This study will add to the knowledge of Pakistani Muslim mothers' perspectives and the challenges they face in caring for their children with IDD. For future research, intervention studies can be developed to examine effective caregiving competencies and skills for children with IDD.
