This was designed to be a short form, self-administered version of the Life Quality Assessment which we developed for DDS in the mid nineties. Here’s the introduction we used:
What is California Lifestyles about? The questions you will find below are designed to help Californians with developmental disabilities look at their own quality of life. For people who cannot speak for themselves, these questions provide a way for service coordinators, family members or advocates to think about the life quality of someone they know and support by looking at life from his/her point of view.
