HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS INFOGRAPHIC:

This Health Research Council funded study, undertaken in Auckland with 35 disabled children and young people and their whanau, has found social attitudes can undermine inclusion and participation as much if not more than inaccessible built environments.  The lived experiences of study participants, who had visual or mobility impairments or were hard of hearing, were explored through at home, school and/or walking interviews with young people and their family members. A collaboration between the research team and cartoonist Toby Morris resulted in a comic strip that illustrates various ways disabled young people’s mobility and participation in community life can be thwarted by the ableist attitudes of others.
