Abstract

Date Presented 4/19/2018

Current health-related quality of life (HRQOL) assessments for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) typically use a proxy-reporting system, which may not accurately reflect the views of an individual. We developed a measure to enable self-reporting of HRQOL in adults with IDD.
