The aim of this research was to explore the social construction of intellectual disability and to increase the power of people with intellectual disabilities in the research process. Informed by a contextualist perspective, this research was conducted within a participatory framework. Causal layered analysis was used to deconstruct the data revealing a complex dynamic of worldviews and mythologies which served to dehumanise people with intellectual disabilities and blame them for their own fate (victim blaming).
