Development of Pict-O-Stat: Violence – Focus On Experiences of Violence and a Survey That Can Be Completed by the Individuals Themselves

The purpose of this paper was to find a method that makes it possible for people with intellectual disabilities to independently contribute to population-based research on sensitive subjects. It is important to be able to answer questionnaires independently in sensitive research areas because the participant may not want to ask for help in answering a questionnaire about sexual violence, domestic violence, etc.
