Did You Know?

Despite employment, income, and social gaps, most people with disabilities feel progress has been made in the last ten years.

Many adults with disabilities feel that "things...in general" have gotten better for Americans with disabilities. Adults with disabilities who participated in a 1998 Harris Survey indicated that access to public facilities and public transportation, overall quality of life, public attitudes toward people with disabilities, and the portrayal of people with disabilities in media and advertising have improved.
