Personal Integration Inventory.
Bersani, Hank A., Jr.; Salon, Rebecca
The Personal Integration Inventory is a "survey" that can be used to look at the life of a single developmentally disabled individual and the extent to which s/he is becoming integrated into his/her community. It focuses on the day-to-day experiences and interactions of people who live in community settings and should be completed by someone who has close involvement with the person. The inventory is intended to help monitor growth and progress over time, to help programs identify needs, and to promote training activities for staff members and others concerned with encouraging personal integration. The inventory can be used with persons living in formal programs as well as with their families, with roommates, or on their own. Section I has sections covering non-residential activities, community resources, and personal relationships (including acquaintances, friends, and family involvement). Section II is intended to provide supplementary information with sections on a personal characteristics, home/residential program description, and supports to integration which include promoting integration, public education activities, support/training, time/scheduling priorities, rules and guidelines, and other supports.
