Assessing Individual Support Needs to Enhance Personal Outcomes
van Loon, Jos; Claes, Claudia; Vandevelde, Stijn; Van Hove, Geert; Schalock, Robert L.
Exceptionality, v18 n4 p193-202 2010
Education and human service organizations providing services to people with intellectual and closely related developmental disabilities are increasingly being impacted by the supports paradigm, the quality of life concept, and the evaluation of personal outcomes. In this article the authors discuss the relationship among these three areas, including examples that illustrate how assessed support needs data can be aligned with quality-of-life-related core domains so as to establish individualized support systems that enhance personal outcomes. The article concludes with a discussion of the implications for educators and habilitation professionals of integrating the supports paradigm, the quality of life concept, and the evaluation of personal outcomes. (Contains 5 tables.)
