04 SES 06 B, Social Inclusion for All
Participation is recognized as essential for learning and educational success of children with and without disabilities (Eriksson et al., 2007; Law et al., 2006; Silveira-Maia et al., 2012; Simeonsson et al., 2001) and one of the fundamental human rights (UN, 2006). Defined as the person’s involvement in real life situations (WHO 2001, 2007), it is through participation that children form friendships, develop skills and competences, express creativity, attain physical and mental health and determine the meaning and purpose of life (Law et al., 2006). Participation in leisure activities is, in this sense, an important dimension of individuals’ functioning, well-being and quality of life, motivated by their willingness to take part of enjoyable and meaningful activities (Badia et al., 2012).
Research evidence has repeatedly demonstrated, however, that children with disabilities tend to experience restricted participation in leisure activities in comparison to students without disabilities (e.g., Jarus et al., 2011; Ullenhhag et al., 2012). Children and youth with disabilities engage in activities for less time and the diversity of their participation is also more restricted, due to personal and environmental barriers such as mobility and communication problems and negative attitudes of others (King et al., 2003).
Within this context, it is important to identify the pattern of participation of Portuguese children and youth in different leisure activities in order to develop interventions to support participation in these activities. The aim of this study is to investigate the pattern of participation in leisure activities of children and youth with and without disabilities. This study will attend at the diversity and intensity of participation, as well as at the enjoyment and preference of children to participate in leisure activities performed at school, home and community contexts.
