Blurb/Shorttext:
The foundation of this book is Article 19 of the United Nations on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) and the growing interest to improve the circumstances of people with ID regarding their lack of choice over their lives and living arrangements. It focuses on Article 19 of the UNCRPD – which encapsulates the right of people with ID to choose where and who to live with same as everyone else in society. This book through inclusive research explored the relocation experiences from the perspectives of people with ID, in relation to their available choices during relocation to the community. It offered a detailed account of actual relocation experience from the point of view of people with ID as it relates to choice opportunities which have not really received much attention and has added to the understanding and contributed to knowledge of relocation process important to further and existing research in this area. This book draws from different prominent scholars in the disability field to illuminate the present choice situation of people with ID and provides interesting insights and realities of people with ID who have relocated or relocating to the communities.
