The purpose of this study was to understand the self-identity transformation in women with adolescent autistic children. In this study, in-depth interviews were used to collect data. Eight mothers were recruited who had autistic children aged 13—21 and who were those children’s primary caregivers. Each mother was interviewed from one to four times. Four themes emerged through these mothers rethinking their connection with others during middle age. These included (1) relationships revisited; (2) self-awareness inspiration; (3)reconnection constructed; and (4) new self-identity formed. Results are hoped to provide valuable information for health professionals to understand how mothers of autis tic adoles cents connect with others and with their self-identity during middle age.
