The quality of life of 127 Israeli young adults diagnosed as having borderline intelligence quotient and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and living in community residences, was studied with respect to personal, disability and social ecology data. Overall, quality of life was associated with studying in inclusive education, total attention-deficit disorder symptomatology score, monthly income, participation in leisure activities and having a personal friend. Two significant predictors of quality of life were attention-deficit disorder symptomatology score and monthly income. Additional analysis indicates that among younger residents the two significant predictors were inclusive education and high monthly income, whereas the predictors for older residents were low level of medical disability and low attention-deficit disorder symptomatology score.
