Ager, A and Hatton, C (1999) Discerning the appropriate role and status of 'quality of life' assessment for persons with intellectual disability:a reply to Cummins. Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, 12 (4). pp. 335-339. ISSN 1360-2322Full text not available from this repository.
Three major issues arising from Cummins' (1997) review of quality of life (QOL) assessment for persons with intellectual disability are identified. First, Cummins' analysis of pre-existing measures relevant to the analysis of QOL is argued to be inadequate. Second, the relationship between 'objective' and 'subjective' measures of life experience is proposed to be more complex than that implied by the earlier review. Third, discussion of the appropriate role and status of attempts to measure QOL indicates such measurement may be more empowering of service providers than service users.
