Barrier is Mobility Our third and final solution is in regards to mobility barriers.
We decided that every building should be required to provide ramps
at entrances and exits for those who use wheelchairs, as well as brail
on every sign that directs someone or tells them what is going on
so that blind people can be more independent when doing activities.

barriers to mobility An example of unequal access to facilities
is the case with nine year old Zachary and his father This shows that schools are not equipped to meet the needs of disabled children.
Zachary is a good example of a child being mistreated for his disabilities. Furthermore, children with disabilities that develop in the womb tend to be abandoned or aborted for several reasons Parents do not feel that they will be able to provide a good home for their disabled children
Parents do not have the proper funding for their children Parents feel that children with disabilities is a burden they require a large amount of attention
Parents do not have time to focus so much on their children. The first solution to this problem that we came up with pertains to unequal access of facilities.
We think that the government should put a portion of our taxes towards the school’s special education, as well as towards work areas that are suitable for people with certain disabilities.
The money given to these facilities would make it easier for them to give disabled people opportunities to learn and work in places that would not normally allow them
Another solution that we came up with was in regards to the abandonment of children due to their disabilities.
Parents who abandon or abort these children often feel incapable of raising them due to lack of resources or money.
We think that if they could be compensated in some way, whether it be through the providing of extra equipment or an allowance to those with disabled children, then people would not feel that the only option is to get rid of their disabled child.
