Reference History of Independent Living by Gina McDonald and Mike Oxford This account of the history of independent living stems from a philosophy which states that people with disabilities should have the same civil rights, options, and control over choices in their own lives as do people without disabilities.
The history of independent living is closely tied to the civil rights struggles of the 1950s and 1960s among African Americans. Basic issues--disgraceful treatment based on bigotry and erroneous stereotypes in housing, education, transportation, and emplo yment -- and the strategies and tactics are very similar. The first social movement was deinstitutionalization, an attempt to move people, primarily those with developmental disabilities, out of institutions and back into their home communities. The next movement to influence disability rights was the civil rights movement. Demedicalization was a movement that began to look at more holistic approaches to health care. References.
