Abstract

Date Presented 4/7/2016

In this qualitative study, adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) described what participation means to them and identified participation barriers they experience. Understanding the perspectives of people with I/DD can help occupational therapists support meaningful participation for this population.
