Abstract

This presentation will draw upon two research studies where disabled children and young people were interviewed and kept diaries about their recreational activities, including cycling. Participation in such activities can have health and well-being benefits. Mosaic methods were adapted using picture/ photo elicitation to tell their stories. Glove puppets and toy figures were also used, including a ‘sandbox’ to enable them to show and tell about their lived experiences. A digital story was produced promoting what the disabled child ‘can do’. Interpretative phenomenological analysis is being applied to this data to understand the child and young person’s deeper perspectives. Early findings suggest family factors, resilience and self- determination are key factors that influence participation. Seeking out their voices, provides the opportunity to empower them to be heard by health and social care practitioners and policy makers who can influence a change in practice.
