Independent Living Philosophy
Independent living philosophy is the
belief that each person with a disability
has the same civil rights as everyone else
including inclusion in the community of
their choice. RAIL believes individuals
with disabilities know best what barriers
they have to living independently.
Therefore, they should have a significant
say in what happens in their community
that affects them. People with disabilities
are in the best position to guide, direct
and control programs and services
effecting their lives and independence.
