Adults with Developmental Disabilities
Most people may struggle to understand how adults with developmental disabilities prefer to live their lives. Susan L. Babin, author of “Home, Sweet Home
” (IMPACT; feature issue on Supported Living (1995), published by the Institute on Community Integration) captured the essence of this perfectly:
”We all want the same basic things out of life: a decent and comfortable place to call ’home’, something meaningful to do during the day, some close friends with whom to share the good times and from whom we receive support in difficult times, and the opportunity to make our own decisions about things that will affect our personal lives.”
