Summary: "It has long been evident that the lives of people with disabilities are limited more by the very low expectations that we have held of them... rather than by any personal limitations they themselves may hold. This has led us to create a social reality for people with a disability where they are assigned to live only with other people who also have a disability, and for that living arrangement to be controlled and managed by paid strangers with no relationship to the household. The stories contained in this booklet begin to help us recognise that a different reality is possible... I am hopeful that this booklet will encourage other young people and their families to imagine better for their lives." - FOREWORD

This was a really insightful book - very relevant as my 24 year old daughter will be looking at flatting in the next few years.
