Abstract [en]

This study investigated present and future everyday life situations (ELS) in home, school, work, and leisureenvironments for a group of school-aged children with severe disabilities, including complex disorders and a combinationof disabilities.

The purpose was to explore universal ELS; clarify how the children can be supported in their developmentof autonomy; and to gather information on potential overall goals for interventions. To make data comparable, allreported ELS were linked to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, Child and Youth version(ICF-CY) and listed along with information on the setting. Both today, and in the future, recreational activities andparticipation in school or work were of highest importance, but few reported ELS involved directly interacting with otherchildren. More ELS were predicted to occur outside the home and with a higher degree of autonomy. Therefore,interventions would be focused on the overall goal that children with severe disabilities take initiatives to becomeindependent and to form relationships with others.
