Objective: The current paper examined the relationship between Problem-Solving Ability (PSA) and Quality of Life (QoL) in the mothers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (AS).
Methods: This was a descriptive and correlational study. The study population consisted of the mothers of children with AS in Isfahan City, Iran. The required sample was selected from one autism center (out of three) using a convenience sampling method. Then, a sample of 150 mothers was randomly selected. Accordingly, they completed the 12-item Quality of Life and the 35- item Problem-Solving Inventory (PSI). The obtained data were analyzed using the Pearson correlation coefficient and stepwise regression analysis.
Results: The present research results suggested a significant relationship between PSA and QoL (r=0.696, P<0.01). Moreover, there was a significant relationship between the dimensions of the PSA (self-confidence in PSA; r=0.560, P<0.01), avoidant attachment to PSA style (r=0.241, P<0.01), self-control (r=0.307, P<0.01), and QoL. Regression analysis data also indicated that QoL was predicted by self-confidence in PSA (P<0.01), avoidant attachment to PSA style (P<0.01), and self-control (P<0.01), and self-confidence in PS, as the most powerful predictor of QoL.
Conclusion: The PSA is correlated with QoL, and PSA dimensions, including self-confidence in PS, avoidant attachment to PSA style, and self-control.
