Ron Avery Posted December 4, 2008 Share Posted December 4, 2008 Disabled in France IMHO that is not a very good description of those for whom these topics will be of interest, it infers at first glance the wheels have been stolen off your campervan!!In the sense it is meant, it suggest people are bedridden or at best confined to a wheel chair. But as Kathy righly points out, its not about wheelchairs at all.The deaf are disabled, the blind and partially sighted are also disabled, the elderley with stiff joints and reduced strength are disabled. What they all have in common is impaired mobility, and Mobility Impaired is the term used by most organisations to describe such people. Its not being PC for the sake of it, its just a far more accurate description of those who are unfortunately impaired by a condition from being fully mobile.
