Abstract:
Study compared the self-reported outcomes of individuals with disabilities who received personal assistance services (PAS) through consumer-directed programs to those who received services from agency-directed programs. The results indicated that participants in consumer-directed PAS reported more service choices and satisfaction with PAS. Positive outcomes were associated with sociodemographic, health, and service experience variables for both types of PAS programs.
