Daily Couple Experiences and Parent Affect in Families of Children with versus without Autism
Hartley, Sigan L.; DaWalt, Leann Smith; Schultz, Haley M.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v47 n6 p1645-1658 Jun 2017
We examined daily couple experiences in 174 couples who had a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) relative to 179 couples who had a child without disabilities and their same-day association with parent affect. Parents completed a 14-day daily diary in which they reported time with partner, partner support, partner closeness, and positive and negative couple interactions and level of positive and negative affect. One-way multivariate analyses of covariance and dyadic multilevel models were conducted. Parents of children with ASD reported less time with partner, lower partner closeness, and fewer positive couple interactions than the comparison group. Daily couple experiences were more strongly associated with parent affect in the ASD than comparison group. Findings have implications for programs and supports.
