With over 2.2 million Americans wheelchair dependent, there is a huge demand for accessibility in public areas and throughout homes across America. Despite this, there are still many public areas across the U.S. that are not wheelchair-friendly, but your home doesn’t have to be one of these places.
More than 3.5 million Americans over the age of 15 use a wheelchair. If you or one of your loved ones are one of these Americans, you know how important a ramp is for getting around and accomplishing everyday tasks. There are tons of different ramps out there, and they’re certainly not all created equal.
As many people with disabilities are aware, navigating a new space takes time and planning, and college isn’t any different. If you choose to attend an in-person college, whether commuting to a community college or living on campus at a four-year university, the more research and questions you ask ahead of time, the easier the experience will be during college.
