This study was conducted to examine self-generated domains of quality of life in children with and without cerebral palsy. Study samples were children, ages 6-12,(mean 8.9, SD 1.8) including 41 children with cerebral palsy (CP) and 60 children who were age and gender matched peers without disability. Quality of life was assessed with a modified Schedule for the Evaluation of Individual Quality of Life-Direct Weight(SEIQoL-DW). Group differences in overall ratings of quality of life were not significant; however, there were significant group differences in the frequency and hierarchy of self-generated domains. Within the group with CP, functional ability was not associated with quality of life.
