Special Needs Checklist: How Disability-Friendly is Your City?

The following is an article from The Storage Finder  The same deals with living and housing considerations, employment options education, health care/assistance, quality of life, and transportation/accessibility options for disabled individuals.

The city you live in can have an enormous impact on your quality of life – especially if you have a disability. From wheelchair accessible sidewalks to employment options to the weather itself, there are a variety of characteristics that can determine whether your hometown is a good place to live.

So how disability-friendly is your city?

This could depend on the kind of special needs you have. A lot of city features just might not be as important for you as others. State and local laws will also be a factor. As a minimum, the American with Disabilities Act requires that state and local governments make their programs and services easily accessible to people with disabilities. With that said, it doesn’t mean that all cities and states are alike. Some places may go out of their way to make themselves more appealing to people who happen to be disabled, while other cities might barely do what’s legally required of them. Whether you’re looking to move to a new city that’s great for a person with a handicap or you’re curious to see how accommodating your hometown is, this checklist will help you figure that out. We’ll cover the 77 features that can make your city or town disability-friendly.

  1. It is not just the city but the district. I am fortunate in living in a middle class area, where most people have not suffered great stress in their lives, and people are very kind and helpful
