Universal design is usable by all people.
But who does "all people" really include?

(no, this isn't a trick question)

Wall of People

The people on this page have graciously shared their stories with us.

Universal design is regularly seen as “special,” but it shouldn’t be.

We want to help others understand that disability isn’t only what “those other people” deal with. It’s part of life for everyday people.

Sometimes disability is long-term and sometimes it’s short-term. It might be caused by illness, injury, a condition we were born with, or simply the effects of age.

If you have experience with disability, regardless of its severity, will you join our wall and share your story?
