The disabled population is often overlooked by society. It is almost as if our society would prefer to keep people with disabilities out of sight for whatever reason. Maybe it is for this reason that people with disabilities do not always get the chance to take part in everyday activities like dining out, seeing a movie, or participating in other recreational activities. With my project I plan to increase the ease with which people who are disabled can find activities in the Kalamazoo community to participate in.
I plan to create a guidebook including sections on dining and recreation in relation to how accessible they are to people with various disabilities.
