Current Barriers An example of this barrier is the case of Miele v. Famous Players Inc.
Another Common
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.
We have come up with a few solutions that will help people with disabilities to feel as if they are sharing equal human rights Solutions to the Barriers In conclusion we think that the barriers that are there are ones our society has created through ignorance.
We believe everyone whether they are disabled or not should have all the same opportunities and access to the same facilities.
We think individuals should be treated equally .
We tend not to think about issues like this if we or our families are not directly affected by them, we all need to open our eyes and our minds to differences between us. That being said we are more alike then different.
We should not prejudge or underestimate each other. Think about this , the following people were considered disabled due to either physical disabilities or learning disabilities: Albert Einstein, Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Franklin D. Roosevelt and look what they achieved.

What Makes a Disability in Ontario Disability is the term used to define a restriction in the ability to perform a normal activity of daily living which someone of the same age is able to perform Current barriers exist in both legal and social situations:


unequal access to schools, services, unemployment
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.
