Accessibility

The word "accessibility" generally brings to mind ramps, as an accommodation for people who use wheelchairs.  However, accessibility is far more than structural modifications to a building. 

Structural modifications are important, but accessibility encompasses everything from preferential seating in class or longer time on tests; to downloadable apps that convert text to audio; to flashing lights on smoke alarms; to Braille markings in an elevator; to emergency management systems with built-in consideration for people with disabilities. 

Accommodations help us each access the world, in a way that is meaningful and inclusive.
