That all depends upon the country where disabled people live. Overall yes, disabled people are indeed being given the respect and opportunities that anyone deserves. Of course there are also countries that don't have the economic stability or social conscious to view disabled in a favorable light.

I do not know in what country the facilities are very good for handicapped people. In India, the situation is pathetic and some of them even remain begging for their living. In all public forums and media, governement speaks at length in favour of handicapped people. I do not see any genuine work done to help handicapped people to self sufficient. They are are constantly kept as dependents.

No I do not. I think we have better equipment to help them but I think they still get forgotten about and the world doesnt allow them access as it should from business to church we dont allow them to fully participate.
