This challenge was taken up by Disabled Peoples’ International (DPI), which is a cross-disability network with over 160 national assembly members. The DPI was a major contributor to the development of the Standard Rules, and the DPI World Council has continued to work with national assemblies to promote a UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled Persons to promote and protect the human rights of all people with a disability. The work of the UN, coupled with the ongoing development of human rights and discrimination legislation in particular countries, has given a voice to many disabled people.

Two concepts have dominated discussion in this area: empowerment (Henderson & Pochin, 2001) and self-determination (Wehmeyer & Garner, 2003). Both concepts address a desire to promote an understanding of, and some control over, the life circumstances of people with a disability by those people themselves. Crucial to the promotion of empowerment and self-determination is that professionals give up some power in their relationship with their clients. Examples of strategies that can be used to promote self-determination and empowerment are: • providing genuine opportunities for choice • giving people a say in important decisions • making people aware of options • providing the skills to plan, to set goals, and to reflect on achievement (Wehmeyer & Shalock, 2001).
