Chances are that most of us know someone with a disability. Did you know that no two people with a disability are exactly the same? Even if they have the same disability, they will someone deal, cope and/or manage it differently.
Imagine how you would feel if your freedom and ability to drive yourself around were suddenly taken away. Wouldn't you want someone on your side to help you get back in the driver's seat? You may be thinking to yourself that something like this could never happen to your or someone you know. Anything is possible and while you hope it will never happen, it never hurts to be educated and prepared.
