Syracuse Univ., NY. Center on Human Policy.
Sixty-five model programs striving to integrate people with severe disabilities into their natural communities were nominated and screened via interviews, site visits, and comparison with eight principles of community integration including family scale community living arrangements, consumer and parent involvement, and development of community living skills. The resulting 41 programs are summarized in terms of services, population, and contact persons. Programs are organized according to state and regional systems, residential services, family support services, and vocational services. (CL)
