The Michigan Developmental Disabilities Position on Inclusion
It is the position of the Michigan Developmental Disabilities Council that disability is a part of the human experience. People with disabilities have specific rights as well as responsibilities. Disability is an ongoing factor in people’s lives, occurring at any age, on a temporary or permanent basis.
Fundamental concepts regarding the rights of individuals with disabilities, indeed for all individuals, include, self-determination and choice-making; independent living; and the opportunity to be fully included in the social, educational, political, economic and cultural mainstream of society.
People with disabilities and their families are capable and creative. They must have key decision-making roles in policies, programs, and services that affect their lives.
Our challenge is to ensure that true choices exist and barriers to full inclusion are eliminated.
