In my country, the fear of persons with disabilities is slowly begining to improve, but surely a lot yet requires to be done, because the discrimination against them in the areas of disability specific services and employment opportunities are still evident. Children with disabilities are sometimes hidden away from the public eye and they miss out on education just because their parents are ashamed of identifying with them. The good news is that many people with disabilities have formed disabled people's organization and are beginning shout aloud for their rights. The civil society organizations are amplifying this position fortnately, and attitudes are slowly changing! Is this the same scenario in your country?

the government should mandate a law regarding disability . for example since the person in the ticketing booth of the cinema is just sitting why not accept disabled person in that way we will be able to make use of them also and at the same time they will earn money. if the governtment will start helping them im sure all their worries will be gone..
