Disability platform: We had our first discussion about the barriers to a good life at the April 2011 meeting in Decatur. We hope to have this discussion around the state and use it to write a Disability platform paper to submit to the DPG for approval.We want to hear from you. What are the barriers to a good life that you face and what are your ideas on how to fix it?
Some of the barriers we talked about at the first meeting were:
