Abstract [en]

Background Self-rated participation is a clinically relevant

intervention outcome for people with mild intellectual

disability. The aim of this systematic review was to

analyse empirical studies that explored relationships

between either environmental factors or individual characteristics

and aspects of participation in young adults

with mild intellectual disability.

Method Four databases were used, 756 abstracts examined

and 24 studies were evaluated in-depth.

Results Four aspects of participation were found:

involvement, perceptions of self, self-determination and

psychological well-being. Reported environmental factors

were: social support, choice opportunity, living conditions,

school, work and leisure, attitudes, physical

availability and society. Reported individual characteristics

were adaptive and social skills.

Conclusions There is a relative lack of studies of factors

influencing self-rated participation and existing studies

are difficult to compare because of disparity regarding

approaches, conceptual frameworks, etc. For adequate

interventions, it seems important to study how profiles

of participation are influenced by different patterns of

environmental factors and individual characteristics.

Keywords: adaptive behaviour, environmental factors,

ICF, self rating
