CISS (Comité International des Sports des Sourds) organized the IPC (International Paralympic Committee) with other sports bodies and national organizations for the Disabled in 1989, however CISS left the IPC in 1995. It seems that there were several factors in the process that CISS left the IPC.First, the idea regarding integration of sports for the Disabled was different between CISS and the IPC.Secondly, the concept regarding sign interpreting at the meetings from ICC to IPC was different each other.Thirdly, the deaf people's thoughts that disabled people themselves should control their own bodies was strongly reflected.In future, CISS is expected to become a strong driving force to prepare events that are open to both disabled people and able-bodied people in each sports federation at all levels and to realize integration of the Disabled in the world of sports. Therefore, it is even important for CISS and IPC to cooperate closely each other.
