Making sense of disability: The role of home and its physical environment

Shah, Rinkle (2015) Making sense of disability: The role of home and its physical environment. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This research responds to the need for a holistic understanding of the way in which people with disability and their family caregivers make sense of disability in and through their home settings. While of specific value to the spatial design disciplines, the research also enhances our understanding of disability and how its meaning is ecologically negotiated over time and space.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
