Leisure Activity in Adults with Intellectual Disability


We are looking for adults with intellectual disability over the age of 30 years and their caregivers to participate in a study that will help us understand how leisure activity predicts healthy aging and well-being for adults with intellectual disability.

The study involves a 1.5-hour visit to the Waisman Center, your home, or disability center.  Both of you will complete questions about the leisure activity and well-being of the adult with intellectual disability.  You will also complete a 7-day daily diary together in which you will answer a short list of questions each day (takes 5-10 minutes per day).  You will each be paid $10 for participating.

If you are interested in being in this study or have any questions, please contact Iulia Mihaila at or (608)262-8860.
