Abstract

Objective: To develop and initially test the psychometric properties of parent and adolescent versions of the Diabetes-Specific Parental Support for Adolescents' Autonomy Scale. Methods: Data-based scale items were developed, analyzed for content validity, and then piloted with 43 adolescents with type 1 diabetes and their parents. Psychometric properties of the scales were then determined with 100 adolescents with type 1 diabetes and their parents. Results: Content validity indices of .80 or greater were obtained for 26 items. Item analysis in the pilot and large-sample groups resulted in 22 items being deleted. Principal Components Analysis of the remaining four items indicated one factor in both parent and adolescent versions, accounting for 50-62% of variance and with Cronbach alpha coefficients of .67-.80. Conclusions: This newly developed parsimonious scale, initially tested to be reliable, and valid, will facilitate research on parental support for adolescents' development of diabetes management autonomy.
