People without disabilities (often parents, institutional staff, etc.) have had far too much control over people with disabilities, and we must work to sever such control. Our brain, our spirit, our emotions, our psyche, and our sexuality all function better in social interaction than in isolation. Positive interaction, facilitated through an interdependent relationship, can in fact allow people to experience more choices and opportunities, leading to a determined spirit. Nevertheless, we must ensure that the individual with a disability, who represents one person in an interdependent relationship, is a valued and contributing member of the relationship.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
