In the January 2011 issue of New Mobility Magazine, Scott Rains wrote an article, “Accessibility is not Inclusion”. In the article he compares and contrasts the difference between the two. Basically, he says that Accessibility is passive, looks backward, looks at stuff and space and is about Doing FOR – a 20th century task. He states that Inclusion, on the other hand, is Active, looks forward, looks at human lives, is about Doing WITH - a 21st century task. You can meet the author and hear about his amazing work by attending the 2011 Disability Matters Awards Banquet & Conference in San Jose, CA on April 6-7. Scott is one of our esteemed presenters.
