Participating in Our Own Solutions

I have a feeling that to participate in our solutions used to be a call to arms for the disability movement, that it was a pretty much essential part of advocacy where informed consent can be given.

I am wondering about the call now.

Who first said it?
What did it mean?
Did it come with anything else?
What if you are an advocate and the partner is not participating?
What if the partner is unable to participate?
What if the barriers in the way defeat the empowering aspects of advocacy?
What do you do with non participation in our own solutions?
