Abstract
Background
Many studies talk about the stress in families with disabled children, but there is little in depth research regarding the variables that are causing this stress.

Objective
The objective of this study is to analyze resilience, satisfaction, and several variables regarding the family situation including the presence of disabled children and their disability type (if applicable) as predictors of stress in families.

Method
This research uses a quantitative, non-experimental, descriptive, and comparative approach. The total sample includes 299 families, of which 178 have disabled children and 121 have children without disabilities. Variables such as resilience, satisfaction, and family situation were analyzed using a sociodemographic questionnaire and the SV-RES Resilience Scale.

Results
The results show that there are statistically significant correlations between stress, resilience and satisfaction. On the other hand, the regression analysis shows that there are variables, mainly in resilience, that enter the model in a statistically significant way, while other variables, such as disability or the type of disability, do not influence this prediction.

Conclusions
These results provide greater knowledge on the variables that influence the onset of stress in families, which allows us to conduct customized intervention initiatives adapted to their needs.
