The collection includes chapters about people with mental, physical, and cognitive disabilities as they lived, worked, and influenced public policy about disability in Canada. People with disabilities have generally moved from being institutionalized in single-disability instruction and training facilities to organizing their own organizations to give voice about the disabling barriers that have stood in the way of the full participation, equality, citizenship, and independent living of disabled people. This book gives a voice to populations of disabled people whose stories remained silent for many generations."--"@en ;
