The participant of this study were sixty one parents of ASD children in South Jakarta that recruited by cluster random sampling. This study used parental acceptance-rejection questionnaire which adapted from Parent Acceptance-Rejection Questionnaire (PARQ) and modified by researcher. Results: Bivariate analysis showed that there was no significant correlation between parent gender (p=-0145; r=0,264), parent age (p=-0,104; r=0,425), parent ethnic (p=-0,123; r=0,345), parent religion (p=-0,072; r=0,345), parent occupation (p=0,138; r=0,285), parent income (p=0,010; r=0,938), amount of children (p=-0,121; r=0,353), and child gender (p=-0,088; r=0,499) with parental rejection of ASD child. In contrast, there was a significant correlation between parent education level (p=0,008; r=-0,337) and child age (p=0,020; r=- 0,296) with the levels of parental rejection. Conclusion: This result showed that it is quite important to all nurses for giving more attention to factors that may related to parental acceptance which can be affect to child care.
