Aging: Development and Validation of a Short-Form Adaptation of the Age-Related Vision Loss Scale: The AVL12
Amy Horowitz; Joann P. Reinhardt and Tenko Raykov pp 146-159
Abstract: This article describes the development and evaluation of a short form of the 24-item Adaptation to Age-Related Vision Loss (AVL) scale. The evaluation provided evidence of the reliability and validity of the short form (the AVL12), for significant interindividual differences at the baseline and for individual-level change in AVL scores over time. Thus, the AVL12 maintains strong psychometric properties and is a shorter, more efficient measure for assessing adaptation to age-related vision loss in both research and clinical settings

It found that there were no essential differences between the groups. Moreover, the friendship relationships, feelings toward parents, and some essential characteristics of the adolescents' emotional state were more positive among the adolescents whose parents were blind
