I just want to leave a brief post to say that this afternoon’s Twitter chat on the Disability Integration Act was fascinating, informative, and emotional. Once again, we got an almost even mix of useful information, new perspectives and ideas, and compelling personal stories … this time all related to disabled peoples’ struggle to get and maintain home care and housing in order to leave an stay out of institutions. It’s hard to imagine a more fundamental issue for people with disabilities.
