Abstract

'Full participation in society' and 'equal opportunities' are key concepts in Scandinavian habilitation and rehabilitation policy. Few studies have been conducted concerning young people with disabilities and their life situation. This is a short report of a study based on a questionnaire answered by 477 young persons aged between 16 and 25 years, primarily with motor disabilities. The results show that they have fewer opportunities than young people in general to participate in social life. A conclusion is that improvements need to be made regarding the quality and quantity of habilitation support.
