The purpose of this methodological study was to determine the psychometric properties of adolescent and parent parallel versions of the Diabetes-specific Parental Support for Adolescents’ Autonomy Scale. Parental involvement that facilitates adolescents’ development of autonomy is one way that parents can be involved in their adolescents’ diabetes management, thereby maintaining metabolic control, as well as facilitating adolescents’ development of diabetes management competence. However, a parental support scale that measures parental support behaviors that encourage adolescents’ development of autonomy for diabetes management does not exist. The scale consisted of 14 items after development of items from qualitative data, review by a panel of experts for content validity, and item analysis in earlier phases. In this phase, the scale was administered to a sample of 100 adolescents with type 1 diabetes and their parents. Following item analysis in this sample, 10 items were deleted. Principal Component Analysis was performed, with the scree test and eigenvalues (2.429 for parents and 2.486 for adolescents) indicating one factor. The loadings ranged between .699 and .854, accounting for 61% of variance for the parent and 62% for the adolescent version. Cronbach alpha coefficients were .77 for parent and .80 for adolescent versions. With parallel versions of this reliable and valid Diabetes-specific Parental Support for Adolescents’ Autonomy Scale, research on adolescents’ development of competence in diabetes management will be facilitated.
