Can you tell me more about the significance of practical resources for people with disability?
Resources not only even the playing field for people with disability---resources determine who gets a chance to compete. Practical resources create opportunity in daily life, and encourage the expression of personal interests and talents. They can help people to anticipate and avoid problems, and to better cope with those problems that can't be avoided. It is critical, under all circumstances related to disability, that practical resources are sufficient and not merely symbolic. For example, a ramp outside of every doorway on a college campus won't help qualified students with wheelchairs to receive an education unless there's accessible transportation to and from the campus---and affordable tuition!
