How We like to Live when We Have the Chance
Deguara, Marthese; Jelassi, Omar; Micallef, Brian; Callus, Anne-Marie
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v40 n2 p123-127 Jun 2012
This article has been written by a group of persons with intellectual disability, which is called the Consultative Committee of Persons with Intellectual Disability. This group works in Malta. The article is about how we would like to live. It looks at two things: "where we would like to live" and "going out in the community". This article shows the different opinions of persons with intellectual disability about these subjects. The fact that different people have different opinions shows why it is important that service providers talk to us about how we would like to live. We have a right to choose. Other people should not decide for us about what we would like to do in our lives. But it is also important to remember that we need help in our lives and more accessibility so that we can do what we would like to do. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
