Conclusions In summary , the landscape for disabled people isn’t the best due to the disinterest of the citizens and the government but we can make a real change if everybody put a little grain of effort in order to give them better conditions of life, as also creating more programs and laws thinking about the necessities of these people. All of this together with the technology would be the best way to a society where as the able-bodied people as disabled people can live in same conditions.
