The focus for this project is participation in everyday activities for children with disabilities within a child rights perspective. The research project consists of two parts;

  1. The concept participation for children with disabilities in low income settings; how is it measured, by whom is it measured and where is it measured? A systematic literature review is being done.
  2. How do children with disabilities and their parents perceive participation in different cultural contexts? A newly developed measuring instrument on participation “Picture my participation” will be used to measure children’s participation as perceived by children with disabilities and their parents. Interviews with children with disability and their parents will be conducted in order to do a comparison between parent’s and children’s perspectives.
