The purpose of this study was to examine the leisure and recreation opportunities available in community apartments for adults with intellectual disability (ID), and their association with leisure participation. The study included 38 adults with ID with moderate levels of impairment residing in 19 apartments. Apartment coordinators reported on apartment characteristics, as well as leisure and recreation schedule and opportunities. Findings revealed diverse leisure and recreation activities. We found correlation between the number of activities (rs = .392 , p = .015; rs = .433, p = .007, respectively) as well as a visible daily schedule (Z = 2.143, p = .035) and leisure participation. Findings suggest that diverse leisure activities and a visible schedule may be associated with improved leisure participation.
