Sample text

To the administrator considering some type of community living, to their boards, this book is most aptly suited. It approaches the topic of alternative living as a plan, a road map, a user's guide, with procedural steps, and concepts for the decision maker. Chapter One begin with no elaborate warm up as it probes the reader's level of awareness and commitment. It is obvious that these authors understand the necessity of commitment. They bring the reader the concepts of normalization, criteria of ultimate functioning, the competence-deviance hypothesis, least restrictive environment, dignity of risk, and ecological orientation.

The previous statements from court opinions and federal laws do not contain adequate descriptions for defining the parameters of the concept of a least restrictive alternative. Many members of human service planning agencies interpret the least restrictive alternative as options available, possible, and/or economically feasible. For example, if options that are available within a community are only considered, the range would be extremely limited for communities with few resources. A small town of 12,000 may presently not have a group home and, therefore, suggest placement in a regional residential center as an available option for a severely handicapped person.

This is our street. We can be ruined by it, or we can bring meaning to it and to ourselves. And perhaps that is the sameness for which our hearts long. All streets have grayness, at one end of every street there is a Bellevue. All problems are difficult, it is always hard to work in the half-light, the partially understood, which encompasses so much of living. We cannot run away from life. We cannot pick up all the empty milk bottles or isolate all the derelicts. We must not judge harshly Man-or God.
