Introduction: Expectancy acts as a basis for dealing with problems in human. Early schemas are beliefs that people have about themselves and others and environment and generally stem from not satisfying basic essentials, particularly emotional needs, in childhood. The aim of this study was to determine relationship between life expectancy and early maladaptive schemas in the mothers of children with intellectual disability and also the relation between life expectancy and each determined schema was investigated.

Methods: This descriptive, analytical, cross-sectional study was performed on 50 mothers, who were selected through available sampling referring to rehabilitation centers of Kermanshah City in 2014, with intellectual disabled children in. The questionnaires of life expectancy and early maladaptive schemas were used for data gathering. The information obtained was analyzed by regression analysis through SPSS version 22.

Results: The results of regression analysis showed significant relationship between social isolation scheme (P= 0.002), impaired limits schema (P= 0.007) and other-directedness schema (P= 0.003) with life expectancy in mothers of children with intellectual disability. There was not significant relationship between other schemas and life expectancy.

Conclusion: There is a significant relationship between other-directedness schema and impaired limits and social isolation schemas in the mothers of children with intellectual disability and life expectancy. Indeed, the more sensible are these schemas, the more life expectancy is projected for the mothers. Thus, these schemas can be used to enhance the life expectancy of the mothers of children with intellectual disability.
