Abstract:
This thesis applies a design programming process to users with multiple, severe disabilities. The goal is to increase independent functioning, self-efficacy and competency through design. The example used in this thesis is the design of day program facilities for adults with multiple, severe disabilities. The existing state of disability in the United States is analyzed. This includes the models of disabilities, historical aspects of the disability movement, the design professions' response, multiple disabilities and day program facilities. Hershberger's Value-Centered programming process is discussed. Its' determinants of architecture are applied to day program facilities and the consumers who attend such programs. Generalized values and issues are presented as background information and applied to a hypothetical design project for a day program facility. Future applications and research are recommended to facilitate the process of including users with special needs in the design programming process.
