My PhD will focus on data obtained from a large scale survey study of 1,000 families of children with intellectual disabilities (including autism). I am investigating the role of maternal positivity in relation to their child with either an Intellectual Disability (ID) or Autism. I will also explore the implications of maternal positivity on maternal well-being and the well-being of the child with ID or Autism.
