More than 3.5 million Americans over the age of 15 use a wheelchair. If you or one of your loved ones are one of these Americans, you know how important a ramp is for getting around and accomplishing everyday tasks. There are tons of different ramps out there, and they’re certainly not all created equal.
Sports fans who use wheelchairs are not at all excluded from cheering on their favorite teams in person. With a little bit of planning, a trip to a stadium can be an enjoyable afternoon (especially if your team wins!).
As many people with disabilities are aware, navigating a new space takes time and planning, and college isn’t any different. If you choose to attend an in-person college, whether commuting to a community college or living on campus at a four-year university, the more research and questions you ask ahead of time, the easier the experience will be during college.
