Health‐related quality of life amongst primary caregivers of children with intellectual disability

Children with intellectual disability (ID) frequently have significant educational, social and health care needs, resulting in caregivers often experiencing a wide range of negative effects. This paper aims to determine the impact of childhood ID on caregivers’ health‐related quality of life (HRQoL) across co‐morbid diagnostic groups. The second aim of this study is to determine the risk factors associated with lower HRQoL in this population.
