This vacation season, we’re asking questions about accessibility.
A family outing to a sunny festival ground, or a short trip in the car is pretty standard at this time of year, but what does it mean when someone you care about needs to access events in a special way?
When you go to an outdoor festival, is there enough signage for someone who is hearing impaired to find their way? When a food festival opens, are there proper facilities for a foodie in a wheelchair? When is a camping trip like for someone who needs special care?
For many families, figuring out the logistics of an outing or a short trip are a normal part of summer. What can organizers and other participants to to make these fun activities more inclusive?
This summer, let’s think about what small things we can do to make a shared activity that much more enjoyable.
