Easter Seals’ “Living with Disabilities” Study

Easter Seals has released a study that shows differences across every aspect of life for adults living with disabilities and their families.  Among the study’s findings is that seven in 10 adults with disabilities (69%) live with their parent(s) or guardian, only 17% live independently – compared to more than half of adult children without disabilities (51%). Furthermore, only 45% of parents strongly agree their adult child with a disability will always have a place to live; whereas, 75% of parents of adult children without a disability strongly agree.
