dc.description.abstractThe overall purpose of the study was the identification of factors which influence the freedom of physically disabled people, within South African society, to make choices that will enable them to conduct their daily lives independently. Qualitative research methods (observation and semi-structured interviews) were utilised to explore the problem from the disabled person's perspective. In total there were ten participants, sampling being purposive and opportunistic. The study was essentially narrative, with the results analysed and grouped thematically. Factors influencing independence related to the individual's functioning, as well as the social environment and the study's setting in Mitchells Plain, Cape Town. The relative strength of each factor varied at any one time for a given subject, and between the respondents. Overall there was strong agreement amongst participants and with the literature. Recommendations made related to future research, student training and occupational therapy practise.en_ZA
