This work is the consequence of a research and fieldwork that focuses on the study of the rules that guide the practices of the organisational agents of rehabilitation organisations for people with disabilities. This is a comparative study carried out in four training and vocational rehabilitation organisations for people with disabilities, two based in the North of Portugal and two in Galicia.

The research sought to understand and explain the action of the agents of these organisations based on the practices aimed at developing competencies in trainees with intellectual disabilities, in their dimensions of self-determination, participation and independent living, which are part of the concept of Quality of Life.
