In the UK and some other countries, however, this has been challenged by, among others, disability theorists and proponents of the ‘Social Model of Disability’. The social model rejects medical models of illness and disability that portray disabled people as passive ‘victims’ of individual misfortune and emphasises the social structural, environmental and attitudinal barriers that exclude disabled people from full participation in society (Oliver, 1990; Morris, 1991). Furthermore, the social model challenges the language and ideology of ‘care’, arguing that notions of ‘dependency’ and ‘caregiving’ misrepresent both the needs of ill and disabled people and their relationships with ‘carers’, social workers and service providers (Morris, 1991; Morris, 1993; Keith and Morris, 1995).

Gilligan (2000) discusses the notion of ‘turning points’ in children’s lives, whereby a favourable experience may represent a turning point in a child’s trajectory. However, trajectories should not be seen as unilinear, but fluid, recursive and varying between multiple spheres and domains (Schoon, 2006).
