The data were collected through a survey using questionnaires concerning Self-efficacy for Parenting Task Index (SEPTI) and Parenting Stress Index Short Form (PSI-SF). The data analyzed using the statistical parametric of the Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient showed that the correlation coefficient was -0.424 and the significance was 0.004. It was concluded that high parenting self-efficacy of mothers who have children with autism spectrum disorder correlates with parenting stress.
