Abstract

This study deals with the Filipino mothers perceptions on autism, on their autistic children's handicap, behaviors, and on their abilities/potentials along the following: 1. control of aggressive behavior 2. encouragement of reciprocity 3. appropriate closeness; 4. acceptance of emotional complexities and 5. comfort in perceiving and meeting the child's physical needs. It also determines the differences among the respondents which are grouped according to the following : Age, 2. educational-qualification, 3. type of employment, 4. Number of children in the family. 7. number of hours spent with the child, and 8. number of years in years in school. The study also evaluates mothers' opinions on the effectiveness of the roles performed by the special schools towards the development of their autistic children. This study likewise determines the correlations between mothers' frequency of contact with their autistic children, their child-rearing practices; and their perception on autism. This study will help mothers realize the value of their observations and assessments on their autistic children's handicap, behaviors, and abilities/potentials in relation to the development of more positive children-rearing practices what are relevant to their children's developmental needs in the family context. Autistic children manifest moderate to severe lags along cognitive/intellectual, communication psychological and fine motor development and they have negligible to mild lags along gross motor development. Mothers of autistic Filipino children generally exhibit positive ways of controlling their children's aggressive behaviors ; encouraging reciprocity from them demonstrating appropriate closeness with them and perceiving and meeting their children's physical needs.
