Ramps, handicap accessible bathrooms and parking spaces, Braille numbers on elevator panels - thanks to the American with Disabilities Act of 1990, these physical barriers and more have begun to help the disabled lead an independent life. Unfortunately, there are barriers made of beliefs and values that still stand strong. There is no law that prevents someone from acting insensitive. It is time for that to change … and The Disability Awareness Handbook for Families, Co-Workers, and Friends 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 all deserve. There is also a unique “Disability Awareness Questionnaire” to help you determine your sensitivity barometer and help you become aware of what you might be doing or saying wrong. 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.
