Abstract: Including the client and user perspective is more and more in the focus of health care and community Services (Chu et al., 2016). Teaching examples and research projects of the Zürich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), illustrate and explore possibilities including client perspective and client specific skills in different ways. In the “enable-it skill laboratory” clients present their occupational performance difficulties and teach students specific skills based on the enablement skills of the CMOP-E. The structure and content of this teaching unit aims to facilitate a deeper understanding of client centeredness. “Learning from clients” in this „hands on“ interaction, clients teach students different skill such as repairing electric appliances. Beforehand the student’s interview the clients to their occupational history and relate theoretical aspects to practical experiences. Inclusive education: this course teaches influences of political and socio-cultural aspects and gives insight of personal experiences of a child and her family pioneering inclusive education. A young woman and wheelchair user co-lectures with a lecturer from the ZHAW. With a selection of running research projects such as the “playgrounds for all”, we show how the perspective of children is included in research and how children`s voices need to be heard to remove play barriers.
