The thesis project looks at internet use and participation in everyday activities by young people with intellectual disabilities. To explore this the use of different methods, including observations and interviews supported by alternative communication, is needed. The research is based both on the individual’s own perception and on the perspectives of families and professionals on the individual’s internet use and participation.
