Quotation Schober, Christian. 2019. Data and Reporting on People with Disabilities. Zero Conference, Wien, 20.02.19




# it is possible: Intellectual limitations are no ultimate obstacle to standardized questioning # you need to reduce: In order to develop an accessible tool, conventional quality of life questionnaires for people with learning difficulties would definitely have to be strongly adapted and simplified. # do not distort meaning: simplifications should not change the meaning of a question # keep it short: long interviews are to be avoided # use plain language: plain language formulation is an important first step # use pictures and pictograms # stay close to the life of people with disabilities # paid work questions are difficult # do not include other persons: Third parties (e.g. carers) are distorting and reassuring rather interviewers. # good interviewer training is essential # peer surveys facilitate access to the target group. - minimum requirement: the ability to present a standardized questionnaire. - devaluing behavior of the person surveyed is possible “Peter is too stupid for this survey”.
