Finding a Place in the World
This book provides the first comprehensive exploration of the issues affecting the lives of women with intellectual disabilities. Women from all over the world have collaborated to write about their lives, their experiences and their hopes for the future. Different aspects of life - work, family, relationships and more - are discussed.
In and Out of Institutions
This collection of personal and professional perspectives addresses the key steps towards deinstitutionalization as they have been experienced by people with intellectual disabilities: living inside total institutions, moving out, living in the community and moving on to new forms of both institutionalization and community life.
Testimonies of Resistance
This book charts the course through which people with learning disabilities have become increasingly able to direct their own lives as fully active members of their communities. Many of the personal accounts, photographs and songs included in this book will be accessible and encouraging to people with learning disabilities.
