Abstract of the Article
The present study compared resilience, perceived social support and locus of control among mothers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and normal children. A comparative research design was used. Through purposive sampling, data were collected from 200 mothers, having ASD (n=100) and normal (n=100) children. Children’s age ranged between 3-12 years (M=6.6; SD=2.4), 78% of the children were first born males. Participants were assessed through the Resilience scale (Wagnild & Young, 1993), The multidimensional scale of perceived social support (Zimet, Dahlem, Zimet, & Farley, 1988), Locus of control scale (Rotter, 1966) and Demographic information sheet.
The results showed significant differences in resilience and locus of control in mothers of children with ASD and normal children. However, resilience and perceived social support showed non-significant differences in both groups. Results also showed a significant relationship was found between resilience and social support in both groups. These findings have clear implications for intervention for mothers of Children with ASD, especially through cognitive behavioural management. Future studies need to focus on parental counselling especially regarding the future plans of the child in the long term.
