Independent Living

Independent living, is a philosophy and a worldwide movement of individuals with disabilities working for equal opportunities, self-determination, and self-respect.  It stems from the fundamental principle that people with disabilities are entitled to the same civil rights, options and control over choices in their own lives as people without disabilities.
