The Community Integration Questionnaire – Revised (CIQ-R)
The Community Integration Questionnaire is a tool used by researchers to gather information about how connected people are to their communities.
This paper revises the Community Integration Questionnaire (CIQ-R), an instrument for assessing outcomes of rehabilitation after traumatic brain injury (TBI), including the goals of people living with the effects of TBI.
The Summer Foundation has produced a video that explains how to use our CIQ-R. You can also download the scoring guidelines.
