An Eye-Opening Understanding of Accessibility


Is accessibility initiative for you? A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about my encounter with the rude customer. And it got me thinking about accessibility. I am used thinking about my life in terms of issues of accessibility, and whether I can go places. But, it is always is somewhat of a eye-opener to me when I watch parents with young children in strollers navigating our less than accessible world. It is often a challenge with one child I often watch in amazement when I see parents with the double wide strollers maneuvering with two children.

I feel there is a lot of need for improvement in terms of our sense of accessibility. People, tend to have a different definition depending on who you ask as to what accessibility truly means. When traveling, I have called and asked if a certain restaurant is accessible to be told yes it is, to arrive at be greeted by their version of accessibility which happened to be a flight of stairs.

I am curious to think what your thoughts are on our sense of accessibility in society. Do you struggle to get around? Share similar stories below in the comments.
