Robert L. Schalock, Ph.D. Biography:

Robert L. Schalock, PhD, is professor emeritus at Hastings College (Nebraska), where he chaired the Psychology Department and directed the Cognitive Behavior Lab from 1967 to 2000. Since 1972, his work has focused on the development and evaluation of community-based programs for people with disabilities and the key role that the concept of quality of life plays in the planning and delivering of individualized services and supports. Dr. Schalock has published widely in the areas of personal and program outcomes, the supports paradigm, adaptive behavior, clinical judgment, and quality of life. He is a past president (1997-1998) and fellow of the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) and chaired the AAIDD Terminology and Classification committee that issued its most recent manual on diagnosis, classification, and systems of supports. He is also coauthor of the AAIDD Supports Intensity Scale and the Diagnostic Adaptive Behavior Scale. Dr. Schalock is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences and has assisted a number of countries in their efforts to develop community-based programs for people with intellectual and closely related developmental disabilities within the context of the supports paradigm, the quality-of-life construct, and outcomes-based evaluation.
