Social scientists have been interested in studying families of children with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) for decades. Theoretically, parenting occurs in a family context. Yet, little is known about this relationship from an empirical standpoint among parents of children with NDD. This project draws on studies selected from the larger Parenting Matters! systematic literature review on parenting children with NDD using a protocol with specified inclusion and exclusion criteria to explore what is currently known about the relationship between family environment and parenting of children with NDD. A secondary objective was to review articles that met inclusion/exclusion criteria for additional correlates of parenting. A database of 514 studies was searched for articles that contained a parenting and family measure. Using a family and parenting typology, each article was coded for different aspects of the design, method and findings. These were analyzed and synthesized to generate a representation of current knowledge. Forty-eight studies were selected from the larger collection of studies in the systematic review. Twenty-one studies examined family environment variables in direct relation to different aspects of parenting. A significant proportion of the measures used in the studies were over 20 years old. Additional correlates of parenting included the severity of the child's diagnosis or impairment, child externalizing behaviors, parental depression and availability of informal supports. The importance of the family environment in relation to parenting was established, however, it was not possible to draw conclusions around strength or effect size of the relationship of these concepts. A meta-analysis is recommended to further explore this research question
