This study explored demographic differences, employment variables, and work-life balance among working parents of children aged 0-12 with neurodevelopmental disabilities versus those without disabilities. It also examined how demographic factors, employment variables, parental stress, work centrality, and life meaning predicted work-life balance. The findings revealed that parents of children with disabilities were less educated, worked less, and experience higher parental stress than did parents of children without disabilities. Additionally, increased parental stress significantly reduced work-life balance, with the effect being more pronounced among parents of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities.

Keywords: Working parents of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities, parental stress, work-life balance.
