Measuring Family Quality of Life for Evaluation and Support

Conference Year: 

2015

Primary Speaker name: 

Beginning with existing measures of family quality of life, such as the Beach Center FQoL, we developed a measure specifically for early intervention (0-5). Different from other tools, our Family Quality of Life for Evaluation and Support (FaQol) includes a section for the family to rate their child’s functioning. This session will describe how to use the FaQoL to talk to families about their quality of life and how to use it as a measure of the success of early intervention.
