Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate the qualitative differences in children's conceptions of the word ‘disabled'. Two hundred and thirty children, aged 7-12 years of age, were instructed to make a drawing of what came into their minds when they heard the word ‘disabled'. A brief written commentary on their drawing was also requested. The drawings and comments showed that the children had a positive attitude towards the word ‘disabled'. They drew and commented that a disability had medical causes, a technical device was a prerequisite for disabled people, a disability had social consequences and that a disabled person needed support. The children also explained that there were obstacles which impaired disabled people's performance of activities. Access to some environments and being an active part of society was limited for some disabled people.
