Access like air says man with cerebral palsy

by ISAAC BALDRY

Recently, I was contacted by Apostrophe magazine, to see if I was interested in putting something together about “access”. My first thoughts were access is a huge topic. I thought I should follow up with a few questions. Turns out, they wanted me to follow up on my statement, “To me access is like air, I need every day and all the time.”

Interestingly enough, the ADA and I are about the same age, we both turn 25 this year. I am part of that first generation to have always expected access to be a part of our lives. I grew up believing that I could and should be able to do everything anyone else did. If something didn’t work one way for me, I just needed to spend a little time thinking about, another way to accomplish the same thing. It wasn’t important how I did whatever, it was important that I was able to participate and be a part of whatever.
