Including People With Disabilities?

Do any cohousing communities have experience with including members with
severe disabilities?  I am wondering about the extent to which cohousing
offers opportunities for individuals who have often been systematically
separated from their communities to find places where community ties can be
reestablished.  Increasingly individuals and families with severe
didabilities are seeking to become interdependent (not independent or
dependent) and to participate fully as contributing members of communities.
 Do these interests and those of their non-disabled peers converge in
cohousing communities?
