Disability and Habilitation

People with disabilities often experience extensive difficulties in everyday life. Research in Disability and Habilitation is interdisciplinary and multi-professional with a fundamental focus on the interface between the individual and his/her environment.

A joint conceptual perspective is found in the WHO Classification ICF. Contextual Factors in particular serve as a framework for research activities in elucidating environmental aspects of disability at present including adults with intellectual disability, mental health disorder or aphasia, children with significant developmental delay, as well as children at risk of neglect. More specifically, current study objectives include development of methods, environmental and personal factors as potential facilitators and/or barriers and the outcome of the person-environment interaction from the perspective of people with disabilities, their networks as well as of professionals.
