Abstract
The keyword for this study is autonomy, a concept most of us take for granted. But for individuals with disabilities this is a right they have had to fight for throughout history. During the 30-40 years this fight has been rewarded and they have gotten their rights incorporated in the law.
Autonomy has been described in this study as a human right, which should be given to everyone, regardless of who you are and what conditions you are in. It is also a right to receive help if you cannot express this autonomy to the fullest by your own means. This right is expressed in the law for some support and service for some disabled individuals.

Autonomy has been described in this study as a human right, which should be given to everyone, regardless of who you are and what conditions you are in. It is also a right to receive help if you cannot express this autonomy to the fullest by your own means. This right is expressed in the law for some support and service for some disabled individuals.
The purpose of this study was to immerse in how the model of today’s work with and for individuals with cognitive disabilities is formed with the starting point from the law that expresses the right to autonomy and the respect for the individual. The empirical material for this study comes from interviews with sections managers who have given their personal opinions and experience on the subject. I found out that there are a few elements that either support or countervail the individual’s autonomy. Knowledge and the individual’s right to say no are mentioned as two strong elements that supports the autonomy and staffs attitudes to reorganization and relative’s involvement was mentioned as elements that countervail the work with autonomy. From these elements the section managers develops strategies to either promote or counteract these elements to respect the individuals autonomy. (Less)
