Occupational therapy supporting people with profound intellectual disabilities to engage in occupation at home

Research output: ThesisDoctoral ThesisResearch

Abstract

This thesis explores the nature of engagement in occupation (meaningful activity) and the different levels at which people with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities may engage. Research suggests that many are poorly supported to do this meaningfully at home. When through circumstances beyond their control, people do very little, occupational injustice arguably results, impacting on physical and mental wellbeing and quality of life.
