This study aims are to formulate and test the effectiveness of ecological counseling models to reduce stress parenting by parents of children with Multiple Disabilities and a Visual Impairment (MDVI). The study was conducted in P2TLV YPWG Bandung through a qualitative approach with case study methods on 7 cases and carried out in the context of early intervention. The results show that the parenting stress of their experience is quite complex and diverse. Diversity occurs both in symptoms, forms, sources, and dynamics. The results of the implementation of the ecological counseling model which was built through group counseling, with the formation of parent group support and home visits as the main pillar, and in the process prioritizing the pattern of collective empowerment, coping strategies, and attachments implemented in the context of early intervention, showed the model was able to reduce parenting stress on MDVI parents. This is marked by the occurrence of behavioral changes in a more positive direction than the implementation of the model before. Thus, this approach deserves to be disseminated and used as one of the references in overcoming parenting stress in parents of MDVI children.
