Abstract
This research was conducted to find the role between social skill and parental involvement toward quality of life of working intellectual disabilities. Quality of life in intellectual disability require special attention hence the increase amount of intellectual disability. Social skill was measured using an instrument called Social Skill Rating System (SSRS) (Gresham & Elliot, 1990) and parental involvement was measured using Alabama Parenting Questionnaire (APQ) (Frick, 1990). Quality of life was measured using WHOQOL-DIS (WHO, 2007). The participant of this research are 66 working intellectual disabilities at the age of 20 to 62 years old. The result of this research show that parental involvement positively correlated significantly with quality of life (r (66) = 0.432 dan p = .1 < 0.05). This means that the higher the parental involvement, the higher the quality of life of intellectual disabilities. However, there is no significant correlation between social skill and quality of life (r (66) = 0.265 dan p =.015 > 0.05). Based on these research, it is advisable for parents to become involved in their child’s life particularly in individuals with intellectual disability.
