Purpose: To examine the measurement structure of the Brief Adaptation to Disability Scale-Revised (B-ADS-R). Measure: A 12-item measure of disability acceptance based on the four value changes (enlarging the scope of values, containing the effects of the disability, subordinating the physique, and transforming comparative-status values to asset values) postulated by Beatrice Wright. Participants: 154 Taiwanese with spinal cord injury living in the community. Results: The 4-factor intercorrelated model fits the data very well: chi[superscript 2] (48, "N" = 154) = 82.26, "p" less than 0.01; chi[superscript 2]/"df" = 1.71; CFI = 0.95; RMSEA = 0.07 with 90% CI (0.04, 0.09). The 4 B-ADS-R factors closely replicate the theoretical constructs of disability acceptance with acceptable reliability and validity. Conclusion: The B-ADS-R was found to measure the four value changes postulated by Beatrice Wright in her disability acceptance theory in a sample of Taiwanese with SCI. It demonstrated adequate psychometric properties and can be used as a brief measure of disability acceptance in rehabilitation research and clinical practice.
