Self-Determination for people with disabilities(K. E. Ellingsen, Keynote at the AIEJI World Congress Copenhagen May 2009)

  • No one doubts that greater personal autonomy, self-determination is important.

  • But it is essential to remember that most of us have also received support in learning how to make choices, what to consider, and to weigh alternatives and possible consequences.

  • Persons who have been controlled by others up through adult life, and been excluded from ordinary life experiences, often simply do not know how to make decisions.
