Abstract [en]

Background: The two most common neuropsychiatric disabilities are attention deficithyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Functional impairmentsentail some difficulties for the child that affects the family situation such as interaction withother people and learning and memory difficulties.

Aim: The aim of this study was to illuminate the family's experience of living with childrenwho have a neuropsychiatric disability.

Method: A qualitative approach was used for this literature based study. The CINAHL and PubMed databases were used to search for scientific articles. Through systematic searches we found ten articles and these were analyzed using Friberg's five-step method.

Results: The result is presented on the basis of three themes: An everyday battle, Experiences of understanding and support from the outside world and Family life in light and darkness. It shows that it was a daily struggle for family members in their daily lives. The parents experienced a lack of understanding from the outside world and received limited support. Several parents felt socially isolated and alone. Their daily situation ended up in strong emotions.

Conclusion: This study provides an understanding of how family members experience their everyday situation with the child with neuropsychiatric disability. The family relationship was affected in one way or another and it was important for family members to receive support. The nurse has an important responsibility to provide the support and care that family members need to avoid suffering.
