Background & Aims: In addition to the high prevalence of autism, this disease has many effects on a child's life. This research was conducted to investigate the effect of training label emotions to autistic children with high-function on their quality of life.
Materials & Methods: The study was semi-experimental with the single-subject method. In this study, 5 boys with high-function autism entered the study. In the base and follow up phase, the subjects did not receive an education. In the test phase, emotion recognition in 3 sessions and label emotions in 6 sessions were trained. Data collection tools were demographic characteristics and the quality of life of children (Peds QoL) questionnaires. At each phase, 3 measurements were performed within one-week intervals. Data were analyzed by SPSS software using descriptive statistics, Friedman test, effect size, and recovery percentage.
Results: In the present research, the mean age of samples was 8.6 years. The effect size of label emotions training in comparison to base-test (ES = 2/47), test-follow-up (ES = 3/28), and base- follow-up (ES=2/89) had been high and the highest recovery percentage was related to the social domain (RP=163.121%). Training of the LE has improved quality of life (P=0/007).
Conclusion: The results showed that label emotion training for high-functioning autistic children had a significant effect on their physical, social and school dimensions, and the overall quality of life score. Researchers are recommended to use this method in their future research.
