Archives of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

Author: Berrol, S.
Type: Journal Article
Year: 1979


The Independent Living Program movement was created by the disabled community. It has established a broad coalition of diverse disabilities functioning to provide services on a broader scale than has been traditionally offered by the rehabilitation community. The effectiveness and the strength of the movement lies in consumer control. The able-bodied professional can provide expertise, balance and a vital link with established rehabilitation programs. The integrity of the independent living program movement can only be maintained and developed if these basic concepts are respected.
