The purpose of this study was to understand how people with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities perceive community. It is important to consider an individual’s context when investigating perceptions of community. Having a better understanding of how this population perceives community can lead to improved policies and regulations that truly maximize participation in everyday occupations, which will ultimately improve this population’s health and quality of life.
