First of all a web server which became the stage of network community was raised up and prepared contents for network activity. Homepage (HP) of this network community served as entrance site to information society. The web site has a top page (purpose, site map), a knowledge page (books, collection of terms), an information page (training society information, camp information, living information, information devices), a communication page (a group and personal HP, a meeting of parents' association). Then the authors cooperated with handicapped adolescents in a work and proceeded contents preparation of network community. In order to promote the participation of support group, information offering page for Dohsa-hou meeting for the study and patents associations were prepared. HP of network community was shown at the psychological rehabilitation national convention, and cooperation of participants and information offering were broadly appealed.

llowing things were introduced, activity at NPO, some hard experiences during foundation of their own work place, an exhibition of a photograph collection taken by overseas travel, and so on. An elder handicapped person shy at first finally came out her own nitch and told younger persons her experience positively. The participants came to have good relationship and went beyond their generation. The authors mainly investigated the relationship among participants. We interviewed to an individual participant in order to investigate and to pursue her progress. Whoever saw the HP sent their impressions and inquires they might have had. There was a lecture request from a group nearby also. The participants began new experiences after an exhibition. Interviews to them were made it clear that use of information devices, gathering information with the Internet, expansion of communication by E-mail, an experience in network community raised social independence consciousness of a handicapped person.
