Satisfaction for all: A framework for assessing life satisfaction for all people with learning disabilities
MetadataShow full item record
Most services for people with learning disabilities are accessed by service users with varying learning disabilities and communication needs. This article presents a framework for assessing life satisfaction for all people with learning disabilities. The framework is designed to be an all-inclusive service evaluation strategy, which embraces all service users, regardless of their abilities. It is a practical tool, for inter-disciplinary use, providing a starting point for service development. The survey is broadly divided into three sections, dependent on service user communication skills. These sections are described and examples discussed. The article concludes with future implications and recommendations for surveying the life satisfaction of people with learning disabilities.
