In 2005 the National Disability Authority commissioned a consortium of researchers from Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America to examine the quality and costs of supported accommodation for people with intellectual disabilities.
The report on the research was published in 2007 and summarises:
- A review of deinstitutionalisation and post-deinstitutionalisation research conducted between 1995 and 2005, and
- An examination of the instruments used to measure outcomes for people with intellectual disabilities who receive residential support services
