Self-determination is defined as “acting as the primary causal agent in one’s life and making choices and decisions regarding one’s quality of life free from undue external influence or interference” (Wehmeyer, Kelchner, & Richards, 1996, p.22).
It consists of the following components: (a) choice-making, (b) problem-solving, (c) decision making, (d) goal setting and attainment, (e) positive attribution of efficacy and outcome expectancy, (f) self-awareness, (g) self-management, (h) leadership skills, (i) internal locus of control, (j) self-knowledge, and (k) self-advocacy (Wehmeyer, Kelchner, & Richards, 1996).
