Researchers note that in families raising children with severe multiple developmental disabilities (SMDD), the psycho-emotional state of parents is impaired, the quality of family relationships and the psychological climate in the family are deteriorating. To study the characteristics of the relationship in the mother-child dyad in a family raising a child with a disability, a survey of 15 mothers raising children with SMDD from 3 to 7 years was conducted. The following parameters were investigated: the psychological climate, the type of parent-child relationship, and the emotional interaction between the mother and her child (capturing 11 parameters). The novelty of the work lies in the fact that resource states in the “mother-child” dyad in the family raising a child with a disability are identified. These conditions are identified in the areas of sensitivity, emotional acceptance, behavioral manifestations of emotional interaction. These include the following: a high level of acceptance of the child by the mother; empathy, desire for physical contact from the mother; her orientation to the state of the child when building interactions; rendering emotional support to the child; positive feelings that arise in the mother in interaction with the child; the prevailing positive emotional background of the interaction; the ability to empathize; the ability to influence the emotional state of the child; self-awareness in the role of a supporting and receiving parent.
