Occupational Therapy Journal of Research, v18 n1 p25-43 Win 1998
Interviews with three people who use wheelchairs (aged 10, 41, and 72) revealed they were not well informed about Americans with Disabilities Act standards and their civil rights; they were knowledgeable about architectural accessibility. The perceptions and experiences of these different age groups can help occupational therapists provide education and empowerment for clients. (SK)
