This small group has swelled to an international civil rights movement that is responsible for many victories, including the Americans with Disabilities Act. Together, this movement has paved the way for more meaningful lifestyles for all people with disabilities-as well as humankind in general. Independent living is a philosophy which states that individuals with disabilities, like all people, inherently know what they most need in order to succeed. This philosophy embraces some very basic tenents: Inclusion: To erase the “specialness” from the lives of people with disabilities and encourage an open door policy in communities’ housing, job force, schools, transportation and all other facets of community life. Consumer Control gives individuals with disabilities freedom to choose how they prefer to live their lives-as well as latitude to be responsible for their actions. Strength focuses on affirmation, acceptance and potential rather than deficits or failure. It is a declaration of disability – not inability. Self Empowerment is recognition of self worth and control. It expands with self authority, determination and personal success, and helps make life an exciting adventure.
