Translating Self-Determination Concepts into Support for Adults with Severe Disabilities

Written Material

In order for people with severe disabilities to become more self-determining, they need to have the opportunity to exercise choice and control over their life. This requires self-awareness and a supportive environment. In this report, the authors discuss the components of self-determination and describe several barriers to self-determination. They also look at ways of encouraging and supporting adults with severe disabilities to become more self-determining. They include a case study of a woman who has been supported to take more control of her life. Keyword: Self-determination
