  1. But that’s only physical access. What about access to job, services, and programs?  What about being treated with respect and being offered assistance in retail stores, restaurants, and theaters?  All of that involves changing attitudes as well. The more people with disabilities are able to access physical facilities, the more they will be part of the general population. Rather than generating embarrassment, discomfort, or even fear, they’ll be seen more and more in the same way as anyone else – as individuals, with unique personalities, strengths, and problems.  That is, after all, the goal: for people with disabilities to be able to live their lives just as everyone else does, struggling with daily challenges, enjoying the high points, and not having to worry about the simple things like getting up a flight of stairs.
