When Celebrating Accessible Technology is Just Reinforcing Ableism
Publication/Creation DateJuly 4 2015
DescriptionIn this blog post, Kim Sauder discusses some of the accessible technology videos (such as the Scalevo stair climbing wheelchair) that are shared primarily by non-disabled people on social media. She points out that the messages and the conversations around technologies such as these place responsibility on disabled people and ignore the social and systemic barriers that make environments inaccessible in the first place.
