Independent Living
Definition:

Independent Living is the ability to live independently and productively in society with the same freedom of choice and opportunity as a non-disabled person. Therefore it’s not that you are living on your own but that you master where you live and have an equal range of opportunities and choices as a non-disabled person.

Arabic Translation:
العيش المستقل
