ITQOL: Infant Toddler Quality of Life Questionnaire™



Content from the HealthActCHQ Manuals (including norms, proprietary scoring algorithms, weights etc. and related syntax) or items from the surveys themselves may not be included in any appendices, reports, manuscripts or reproduced without expressed written permission from HealthActCHQ.

The Infant Toddler Quality of Life Questionnaire™ (ITQOL) was developed for use in infants and toddlers from 2-months-to-5 years of age. The Infant Toddler Quality of Life Questionnaire™ (ITQOL) adopts the World Health Organization's definition of health, as a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease. This legacy survey was initially developed for use in a randomized clinical trial following standard protocols, a thorough review of the infant health literature, and a review of developmental guidelines used by pediatricians. In a subsequent international study in the Netherlands, parents reported favorably on the specific ease of use, understandability, and acceptability of the ITQOL.

There are two versions of the ITQOL - the 47-item short-form (ITQOL-SF47) and the 97-item full-length version (ITQOL). They measure the same concepts - just with fewer items. For each concept, item responses are scored, summed, and transformed on a scale from 0 (worst health) to 100 (best health). U.S. norms are now available for both the ITQOL-97 and ITQOL-SF47.
