Attitudes to Disability Scale (ADS)

 


Scale name: Attitudes to Disability Scale (ADS)

Scale overview: The Attitudes to Disability Scale (ADS) is a 16-item rating scale designed to measure attitudes toward disability. The ADS was translated into multiple languages.

 Response Type: Items are rated on a 5-point Likert scale of agreement.

 

Scale items = 16

     Scale subscales = 4

Using factor analysis, the authors identified four factors in the 16-item Attitudes to Disability Scale: Inclusion, Discrimination, Gains, and Prospects.

Inclusion

People with a disability find it harder than others to make new friends

Discrimination

People often make fun of disabilities

Gains

Having a disability can make someone a stronger person

Prospects

People with a disability have less to look forward to than

others

 Reliability: The authors reported ADS Cronbach’s alpha values of.795 and .764 in two samples.

Validity: The authors examined the structure of the scale using Confirmatory Factor Analysis. They also reported the results of IRT analyses.
