Abstract

The study conducted was an analytical, cross-sectional, hospital-based research. The study population included the parents of children with autism who were enrolled in the Neurodevelopmental Center of De La Salle University Medical Center. Respondents were selected using stratified random sampling. The data collection tool for the study was a self-administered questionnaire and data was analysed using prevalence ratio. Among 52 parents of children with autism, 47 respondents (90.4%) perceived that good quality of care was rendered to their children and had high satisfaction level; 1 respondent (1.92%) perceived that good quality of care was rendered to their children and had low satisfaction level; 2 respondents (3.85%) perceived that poor/inadequate quality of care was rendered to their children and had high satisfaction level; and 2 respondents (3.85%) perceived that poor/inadequate quality of care was rendered to their children and had low satisfaction level. The prevalence of high levels of satisfaction among parents whose children with autism received good quality of care was 0.979; and the prevalence of high levels of satisfaction among parents whose children with autism received poor/inadequate quality of care was 0.5. A prevalence ratio of 1.96 signifies that good quality of care rendered to children with autism at DLSUMC Neurodevelopmental Center in 2014 was positively correlated with high satisfaction level of parents of children with autism.
