Best Answer

Limited access to some buildings, because of stairs, lack of ramps, etc. Prejudice. Being treated like the person is mentally disabled even when they are only physically disabled. Often a person in a wheelchair, if shopping accompanied by a friend or family member, will find that the cashier will hand their money and receipt to the person with them, instead of to the disabled person, as if the disabled person is incapable of handling money. Some people will actually speak to the disabled person in a manner usually reserved for children, instead of treating an adult disabled person like an adult. Many disabled people are very lonely and are socially very isolated.
