We can no longer wait for cures


I believe there was once, not long ago, the believe by some that there was no point wasting money on accessibility for disabled people because they will all one day be cured. Well, things have moved on and both the money and desires for miracles has gone.

We need to support disabled people right here right now, not only through the accessibility we are seeing being improved day by day, but by improving the way we manage impairments to offer immediate solutions that can improve the quality of life.

The medical profession has softened its attitudes towards impairment and understands its limitations as it learns to patients as partners and not subjects to be cured, and I am glad.
