Tom Ferguson, who has a disability, lived in institutions until his adulthood. In his article "My life beyond the walls" he describes how life in institutions was for him and how his life completely changed when he moved into his own unit. Ferguson describes how beneficial it was for him to move into the community and he challenges all the people who still think that institutions are a good idea.
