Title: Access all areas
Author: Text by Katie Quartano.  Questions by Carol Everhard.
Content:


Wheelchair users have to do the same things as everybody else, like go shopping or go to the bank.   In this reading text we learn how David, a wheelchair user, was given the choice of conducting his banking business in the street or going to another bank.  Although the bank had a sign saying it was wheelchair accessible, this was not the case.  Exercises on the meaning of signs, word building and compound nouns follow.  Questions for discussion encourage learners to think about David’s feelings and also about wheelchair accessibility in their own hometown.  A glossary and answer key are provided.
