PINTO, Alinne Souza  e  CONSTANTINIDIS, Teresinha Cid. Integrative Review on the Living of Mothers of Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2020, vol.12, n.2, pp. 89-103. ISSN 2177-093X.

Generally, it is the mother of the child with autistic spectrum disorder (TEA) who dedicates herself to the care of her child, makes adaptations in her daily life, and may have impoverishment in her social, affective, and professional life, which can lead to physical and emotional exhaustion of this woman. This study aimed to identify in the scientific literature the overload of these mothers, as well as the coping strategies of the daily difficulties. An integrative review of the literature related to the subject, in the last twelve years, was carried out. The search procedure resulted in six articles for the final analysis bank. Because of this integral dedication, one can see the emotional overload with the confrontation of this phase, the loss of the child that was idealized, stress, dealing with prejudice, as well as the need of this mother to have assistance in caring for the child.

Palavras-chave : autism; mother-child relations; mothers; stress; emotional overload.
