This paper describes the development of the fear survey for adults with mental retardation (FSAMR) and provides initial evidence of its psychometric properties. The FSAMR was designed to be sensitive to the assessment needs of individuals with mental retardation. The items were developed through open-ended interviews, a review of existing measures, expert input, and pilot testing. The sample consisted of 138 adults with mental retardation (73 from institutional settings and 65 from community settings). Cronbach's alpha internal consistency coefficients were 0.97 for the scale, and above the 0.60 threshold set for the study for all but the acquiescence response set (ARS) subscale. Significant concurrent validity coefficients with anxiety measures were in the moderate range (r = 0.32 and 0.40) and are comparable to other similar studies. Implications for using the FSAMR are discussed.
