Purpose: To review and explore self-perception of community participation in children with disabilities. Relevance: Participation (i.e involvement in life situations) is a core concept within the ICF framework. Community Participation amongst children with disability is an emerging topic of research. Many of the studies have reported parental, caregiver and therapist perceptions. As every child has a unique perception, it is important to report children’s perception of community participation. Participants: Articles reporting community participation in perception of children with disability were included and articles reporting perceptions of parents, caregivers and therapist were excluded. Method: Comprehensive literature search was performed using the search engines PubMed and Google scholar. Search strategy was devised and articles selected based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Results: 2837 articles were screened and 17 were included in the review. 6 were qualitative studies, 10 were descriptive studies and 1 systematic review on psychometric properties of children self-report measures. Most of the studies explored children’s perception of participation in community using interview and questionnaire method. CAPE and Picture my Participation were the most commonly used questionnaires. Conclusion: Majority of the studies are descriptive and qualitative studies. Hence there is limited data available in literature, as most of the studies are in the process of exploring and developing scales to understand the self-perception of community participation in children with disabilities. Implications: This experience-based participation model if implemented in Paediatric Physiotherapy may provide personalized perspectives which might be key to community participation.
