Impact Feature Issue on Self-Determination and Supported Decision-Making for People with Intellectual, Developmental, and Other Disabilities

Community Living

The heading "Community Living" is typed in a color bar across the top of a box. Below it are four photos representing two different areas of work in the Institute on Community Integration’s Community Living program area. The first pair of photos shows a close-up of Amy Hewitt on the left, and to the right is a picture of her seated on a stage with four other people engaging in discussion. The words over that righthand photo are I am driven to professionalize the direct support workforce. Below that is a second pair of photos of John Smith. On the left is a photo of John working with his assistive computer equipment at his desk, and the words over that photo are I am driven to rethink what accessibility means. To the right of that photo is a close-up of John seated in a chair.
