The well-being of individuals who have a motor disability is undoubtedly influenced by their home environment. For optimal quality of life at home, there should be a fit between the environmental characteristics of the dwelling and the residents’ needs. In households that include a person with a motor disability, the psycho-environmental needs of all the members of the household should be considered. From our review of the scientific literature, we conclude that little is known about the perceptions of individuals with a motor disability regarding the quality of their home environment. Even less is documented about the psycho-environmental needs of the people they live with. Exploring the views of those directly involved is an appropriate way to truly understand the needs that must be met in a particular residential setting (Heywood, 2004). With this aim in mind, a new measure was designed to explore the residential priorities of people with a physical disability and their family members. The theoretical basis of the measure is the psychoenvironmental model (Jutras, 2002; Steele, 1973), according to which the residential setting must meet six needs: shelter and security, social contact, symbolic identification, task instrumentality, pleasure and growth. Developed using the Q methodology, we wrote a Q-set of 48 items expressing a wide range of needs at home, including but going beyond ergonomic considerations. Since content validity is essential when developing a Q-sort, the items were based on the literature describing the experience of people with and without disabilities with respect to their home environment, and were written in collaboration with an occupational therapist experienced with clients with physical disabili- ties. To express their personal priorities, respondents are asked to assign each item a ranking position along a simple face-valid dimension (e.g. most agree to most disagree). They are also asked to assign a fixed number of items to each ranking position. The presentation will illustrate how the factor analysis of the rankings is used to develop profiles of priorities that could be useful in both research and psycho-environmental counselling. By establishing these profiles, it is possible to (1) identify and compare the priorities of all members of a household, (2) pinpoint the characteristics shared by respondents reporting the same priorities, and (3) potentially identify what is a priority for them all. The measure presented here was used in a study on the re-appropriation of the residential setting involving 27 individuals with paraplegia or quadriplegia and 27 persons living with them. After describing the results, potential applications of the measure will be discussed. In research, such profiles provide a better understanding of the issues related to the wellbeing of the different members of a household and help to identify principles for optimal co-housing. At the clinical level, the measure could contribute to support discussions between professionals and members of households about home adjustments needed in the rehabilitation process that may be well accepted by everyone and contribute to their well-being.
