Self-generated Domains of Quality of Life in Children with and Without Cerebral Palsy.

Author information

Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, USA.


This study was conducted to demonstrate feasibility of utilizing a modified SEIQoL-DW with children by examining self-generated domains of quality of life in children with and without cerebral palsy. Study samples were children, ages 6-12, (mean 8.9, SD 1.8) including 41 children with cerebral palsy (CP) and 60 children who were age and gender matched peers without disability. Quality of life was assessed with a modified Schedule for the Evaluation of Individual Quality of Life-Direct Weight (SEIQoL-DW). Group differences in overall ratings of quality of life were not significant; however, there were significant group differences in the frequency and hierarchy of self-generated domains. Within the group with CP, functional ability was not associated with quality of life.
