Publisher:

Reports a study which investigated the activities of people with learning disabilities in community-based residential services. It was found that people who spent more time engaged in household activities lived in services which used identified procedures to encourage participation, and that domestic-style environments which aimed to encourage participation were less effective in doing so. It was concluded that services need to develop strategies to actively encourage both participation in household activities and interaction, but that these can be designed to avoid rigid practices.
