Overview

Ramps, handicap-accessible bathrooms and parking spaces, Braille numbers on elevator panels”thanks to the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, these physical barriers and more are being addressed, helping the disabled to lead independent lives. Unfortunately, there are barriers of belief and values that still stand strong. There is no law that prevents someone from acting insensitive. It is time for that to change and this book provides the first step. Inside, you'll find important sections on how to act on the job, within the family, out on a date, and in public places to ensure that you”and everyone around you”can have the respect and dignity they deserve. Within the pages of this important book, you will begin to realize that people with disabilities don't want you to treat them like equals. They are equals”and the more we understand and the more we see, the more we will accept this truth completely.
