Abstract:
Most adults are able to take some control over where they live and are able to reflect on their migration histories, those places where they have lived and worked, and those places where they might aspire to live in the future. These life altering decisions have been negotiated either autonomously or in conjunction with significant others in their lives. For some adults, most notably those with learning disabilities, these life decisions are partially, if not wholly, made for them by others. It is therefore the aim of this thesis to uncover more about the decision-making opportunities afforded to people with learning disabilities regarding their home-spaces as they navigate ‘moving landscapes’ which they have perhaps not envisaged for themselves. Through the themes of decision-making, movement and belonging, this thesis works towards an up-close and in-depth study of residential spaces for people with learning disabilities as they traverse landscapes not always suited to their physical, mental and political needs.
