How to Accommodate People with Disabilities at Meetings - 04-18


Since June 1998, I have used a wheelchair because of a spinal cord injury that occurred when I was crushed by a 7,000-pound falling tree while riding my bicycle. Returning to the stage as a professional speaker three months later, I had a new perspective from a 4-foot, 2-inch, seated height. I have attended many meetings and am keenly aware of the problems that people using wheelchairs experience.
