The findings of this qualitative study provide insight into a range of developmental and personal variables that influence whether young adults with cerebral palsy adhere to physiotherapy programs and advice from physiotherapists, with the aim of improving the quality of services offered to such a population. The study participants included young adults with cerebral palsy between the ages of 16 and 25 years who were enrolled in a college devoted to training disabled young adults. They attended focus groups to discuss their experiences of physiotherapy. A constant comparative method was used within the grounded theory approach for the collection and analysis of data. The results demonstrate that the interaction between physiotherapist and young adult is the essential variable, with the relationship formed being built with trust, respect, and empowerment of the participant. This study offered a valuable opportunity for those often considered too vulnerable to participate in research.
