The present study attempts to assess the quality of life and resilience in relation to perceived social support among mothers of children with learning disability. The sample, randomly drawn, consisted of mothers of children with learning disability (n=150), between 27-50 years. The Quality of life scale, Annalakshmi resilience scale, and Multidimensional scale of perceived social support were used to collect data from the participants. Zero-order correlation revealed high, significant positive correlation among quality of life, resilience and perceived social support. Partial correlation computed indicated that the strength of the relationship between resilience and quality of life attenuated when perceived social support was controlled for, though still maintaining statistical significance, thus indicating its ascendancy in the relationship.

Abstract


The present study attempts to assess the quality of life and resilience in relation to perceived social support among mothers of children with learning disability. The sample, randomly drawn, consisted of mothers of children with learning disability (n=150), between 27-50 years. The Quality of life scale, Annalakshmi resilience scale, and Multidimensional scale of perceived social support were used to collect data from the participants. Zero-order correlation revealed high, significant positive correlation among quality of life, resilience and perceived social support. Partial correlation computed indicated that the strength of the relationship between resilience and quality of life attenuated when perceived social support was controlled for, though still maintaining statistical significance, thus indicating its ascendancy in the relationship.
