Measuring center for independent living (CIL) services to improve consumer community participation.

Abstract: This video presents a discussion about the survey that was sent to centers for independent living (CILs) across the country to identify exemplary practices for increasing community participation of people with disabilities. The survey examined the types of CIL services provided to consumers, how they are delivered, and how CIL staff members and board members view the services offered by their organization and their ability to help consumers more fully participate in the community. Participants ranked the importance of the services and their satisfaction with them. The study also identified characteristics of CILs that emphasize consumer participation in the community and CILs that do not. Running time: 7 minutes 44 seconds.
Descriptor Terms: AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS, COMMUNITY INTEGRATION, COMMUNITY LIVING, DEINSTITUTIONALIZATION, FACILITIES, INDEPENDENT LIVING, SERVICE DELIVERY, SURVEYS.
