Projektets målsättning var förbättrad rörlighet och tillgänglighet, och därmed livskvalitet, för funktionshindrade med behov av specialfordon. Vår slutsats är att pilotverksamheten Taxi för Alla (TFA) på ett positivt sätt bidragit till att uppnå detta syfte. De som har ingått i pilotgruppen har ökat sitt resande under försöksperioden – dock ej med lika mycket som man kanske hade haft anledning att förvänta sig.

Abstract

Are disabled people sexual beings? Should PAs assist their leaders to engage in sexual activity? What are the legal and ethical implications of facilitated sexual expression in the leader/PA relationship?

This paper explores facilitated sexual expression in the Irish Independent Living Movement. The work of respected academics such as Colin Barnes, Jenny Morris, Mike Oliver and Tom Shakespeare, is used to set the experience of disabled people in Ireland, into the context of the wider international disabled peoples movement.

Although the government estimates there are 1.6 million disabled people inKorea and civil activist groups say there are 4.5 million, "Where arethey?" is a question which many ask.

It reflects the isolation in which the disabled live. Despite the apparentinvisibility of the disabled population, however, what is currently going onbehind the scenes is a volatile and compelling movement for a new law to protectdisabled rights.

Min första personliga assistant fick jag i samband med att jag skolintegrerades i mellanstadiet. Det innebar för mig att jag först då kunde börja bestämma över mitt eget liv, i varje fall under skoldagen. Dittills hade jag varit beroende av olika institutionella lösningar i form av specialklasser m m vilka för mig inneburit att andra hela tiden hade bestämt vad jag skulle få hjälp med och därmed också hur mitt liv skulle inrättas. Med en personlig assistant kunde jag däremot själv bestämma hur mitt liv skulle gestaltas.

A Society Without Institutions

With independent living means that one lives either with one's own family, by oneself or with a small group of people in an ordinary flat or house.

The term institution refers to one or more houses that are separated from their surroundings. In an institution many people live together. They are divided into different units. All special services, such as for example training facilities, and daily activities are a part of the institution.

The user cooperative model in personal assistance: The example of STIL, the Stockholm Cooperative for Independent Living

Dr. Adolf Ratzka.  1993.  The user cooperative model in personal assistance: The example of STIL, the Stockholm Cooperative for Independent Living.

by Dr. Adolf D. Ratzka
founder and former chairperson of STIL, Stockholm, Sweden

 

Personal assistance, like no other service, illustrates the key elements of Independent Living. People who need personal assistance have always been made dependent on others for the most basic needs of life such as eating or using the toilet. Given this physical dependency the conclusion was close at hand to consider us as dependent on others also emotionally and intellectually. If you cannot pull up your pants like a small child, you may be treated like a small child in other areas as well. It is no surprise then that the Independent Living philosophy is most easily grasped by people who need personal assistance.

Usando nuestra experiencia combinada con las políticas de asistencia personal, se recopiló una lista de características para una política que promueve la autodeterminación y la ciudadanía completa para las personas con discapacidades extensivas.

Employing your own personal assistant - Tools for Power

GAD's Center for Independent Living.  1989.  Employing your own personal assistant - Tools for Power.
GAD's Center for Independent Living can help. (1993) We have already assisted nearly a dozen people in the employment of their own personal assistants. This really does put you, the disabled person in control. You can decide who to employ, which hours they should work and what they should do. But control brings with it responsibilities and this is where GAD can help.

Not surprisingly the effective management skills essential to coping with the day-to-day matter of relating to her/his personal assistant are sometimes absent or under-developed.

Rather they are a tool for empowering both those with abilities and their care-givers.

Supporting families in keeping disabled family members at home: Swedish policy instruments

English
Dr. Adolf Ratzka.  1995.  Supporting families in keeping disabled family members at home: Swedish policy instruments.

In most countries the importance of the family as a form of social insurance is declining. As the extended family gradually disappears with industrialization and the labor market's demands on geographical mobility, as divorce rates go up and single parents become increasingly common, the ability of the family to provide mutual aid in everyday life is diminishing. One of the results is that families have fewer resources left for members with special needs such as disabled children or old parents. If there is no place for these groups in the family, where can they turn to?

What is your personal definition of Independent Living?

 
It is the ability to live independently and productively in the community and to live with the same freedom of choice as a non-disabled person. So it's not that you are living on your own but that you control where you live and have the same range of choices as a non-disabled person. (Jill Weiss)
