CitationEgilson ST, Ólafsdóttir LB, Leósdóttir T, Saemundsen E. Quality of life of high-functioning children and youth with autism spectrum disorder and typically developing peers: Self-and proxy-reports. Autism. 2017 Feb;21(2):133-41.
AbstractStudies have shown parents to report lower quality of life for their children with autism spectrum disorder than children's self-report scores and the same applies for data on typically developing children. Our objectives were to: (1) explore how high-functioning children with autism spectrum disorder rate their quality of life compared with paired controls without autism spectrum disorder; (2) explore how parents of high-functioning children with autism spectrum disorder rate their children's quality of life compared with parents of paired controls; and (3) compare child self-reports of quality of life with their parent's proxy-reports for both groups of children. Data were collected with the Icelandic self- and proxy-reported versions of the KIDSCREEN-27. Reports of 96 children with autism spectrum disorder, 211 controls and their parents were included in the analyses. Compared with controls, children with autism spectrum disorder had lower means on all quality of life dimensions. Parents of children with autism spectrum disorder evaluated their children's quality of life lower on all dimensions than did parents of controls. On four out of five dimensions, children with autism spectrum disorder reported better quality of life than did their parents. Despite differences in ratings children with autism spectrum disorder and their parents agreed on the most problematic dimensions, namely, social support and peers and physical well-being. Our results highlight the importance of seeking the viewpoints of both children and their parents.
