Abstract [en]

The last 1½ decade young people with intellectual disabilities have been a part of my life. My now 13 year old son and several pupils I have taught as a teacher in the compulsory school. Their future and what will affect their lives has always been interesting to me. How do I affect them, why do I do the things I do and think the way I think?

 This study springs out of that curiosity. The purpose is to get hold of the dreams and ideas about the future that young people with intellectual disabilities have. How are the dreams and ideas affected by the idea of the disability in the society as a large and by the youngsters themselves? In analysing the ideas and dreams the young men and women present the different models of disabilities and theories about role taking and identity has been used.

 The result shows that the dreams and ideas both are similar and different to these of young people without intellectual disabilities. The goals are often the same though the means to get there differ. The participants in this study describe their disability as an advantage that will give them privileges making it easier to enter an adult lift.
