This article offers insight into the ways in which people with cerebral palsy and spina bifida reflect upon their experiences of participation in relation to social life and employment. The qualitative method was used to explore experiences of participation among adults with CP or SB, using semi structured interviews. Participants expressed a desire to make a contribution to the labor market, to have sustainable relationships and to be accepted by others.
