Atilla Tunçel, Itır Tarı Cömert, Bengi Semerci.

Objective: The purpose of this study is to examine the usefulness of the Maslach Burnout Inventory in determining the burnout of parents with autism spectrum disorders in their children. Methods: Data were collected from 236 participants in order to reveal the psychometric properties of the inventory. Confirmatory factor analysis was per-formed on the asymptotic covariance matrix to obtain evidence of the construct validity of the data, and the Satorra-Bentler 2 statistic was used for model adaptation. Cronbach’s alpha internal consistency coefficients were calcu-lated to obtain evidence of reliability. Results: When the evidence of reliability and validity obtained were evaluated together, it was found that the scale factor met the good measure of burnout and that the factor design of Maslach Burnout Inventory was confirmed. Discussion: With these features, the scale can be used to determine the burnout of parents with autism spectrum disorder in their children
