Quality of Life in Deaf and Hard of Hearing Adults
Our research team is working on validating and standardizing a new PROMIS-Deaf
profile. This is a self-report measure that assesses the health-related quality of life
(HRQOL) of adults who are deaf or hard of hearing.
PROMIS-Deaf profile includes items and scales that evaluate symptoms, concerns, and
issues that are relevant to deaf and hard of hearing adults’ experiences. This measure
can be taken in English or ASL.
About 650 adults signers and nonsigners are invited to take this survey in either English
or ASL. Each participant who completes the survey will get a gift card. The
survey will take less than 1 hour to finish. This study has been approved by the
Institutional Review Board at the Rochester Institute of Technology and University of
Arkansas at Little Rock.

A research staff will contact you soon.
