People with disabilities are becoming more empowered all over the world. More and more people are banding together to drive the disability rights movement closer to success. While the disability rights movement hasn’t achieved the kind of attention other civil rights movement have, their efforts are gaining momentum and creating real change.
With this empowerment comes increased mobility and increased presence in our communities. People with disabilities have jobs, run businesses, buy homes, and participate in the social and political activities within their communities. Simply put, people with disabilities get around.
Some disabilities require accommodations to improve their mobility. Wheel chairs, for example, cannot always access all of the spaces open to the public. Other disabilities require different accommodations. For example, people with vision loss need to “read” signs in braille, so tactile signs must be provided at appropriate levels to ensure full access.
