Abstract
This article presents the results of a pilot study to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Escala Pessoal de Resultados (EPR), the Portuguese version of the Personal Outcomes Scale (POS), to assess quality of life (QOL) in people with intellectual disability (ID) in Portugal. We present the adaptation and validation processes of the EPR. Data were collected from 1,264 adults with intermittent and limited levels of support needs and respective proxies. Results of the research are discussed in requisites of the validity and reliability. The different coefficients illustrate that this scale may be a useful addition to the QOL assessment in Portuguese people with ID.
