WHERE I STAND

EDUCATION, TOURISM

Education

Is there enough support for students with special needs?


Yes:


Inclusive classrooms

Community partnerships


No:



Lack of resources, such as Educational Assistants and equipment

Lack of funding

Poor teacher training

Increasing demands on teachers

Large class sizes




According to my research, I do not think that there is enough support for students with special needs because the government is reluctant to provide funding and resources.

Tourism

Are transportation and accommodations accessible to people with physical disabilities?


Yes:


Ramps

Elevators

Handicap washrooms

Grab bars

Handicap buses with ramps


No:



Friction strips on stairs

Bath mats in bathtubs

Clear snowy pathways

Lower bathtubs

Shower benches

Lower sinks

Wider doorways and hallways

Move napkin disposal units closer to toilet




According to my research, I think that transportation and accommodations are somewhat accessible to people with physical disabilities. These assistive devices would be useful to people with luggage, moms with strollers and people using crutches as well as people with physical disabilities.
