Background: The objective of this survey was predictors of quality of life for parents with Autism disorder (AD) children in Hamadan City. Materials and Methods: The sample size was included 82 mothers and 81 fathers of children with AD. The questionnaires of Parenting Stress Index-Short Form (SF) and SF-34 were used. The three stress subscales (Parental Distress; Parent–Child Dysfunctional Interaction [PCDI] and Difficult Child [DC]), age of diagnosis of AD, age of child and number of siblings were considered as predictors. Results: These analyses showed that the model among mothers and fathers was able to predict high a significant of variance in quality of life (F = 7.841, P < 0.001; R2 = 0.34) and (F = 8.149, P < 0.001; R2 = 0.35), respectively. Conclusion: The predictors of this study were PCDI, DC and number of siblings.
