People with intellectual disabilities have extraordinary support
needs for physical activity practices that impact on their quality of life. The
literature emphasizes the lack of assessment tools support strategies in this area
with adequate psychometric properties. The aim of this study was to construct
and conduct the pilot study of the “Habits Questionnaire and Support Needs
for Physical Activity in Persons with Intellectual Disability”. The instrument
consists of three parts which held an initial feasibility study. The results are
acceptable with a Cronbach’s .850 for the Perception and value of .837 for
the component Support Needs and Strategies administered to professionals.
Based on the pilot test has revealed the need to review the behaviour of some
items according to the estimates of the correlations of each item with its scale.
