UCP is the most comprehensive resource for cerebral palsy and disability-related news and information worldwide.
In this section, journalists can quickly and easily access information about UCP, as well as current material about UCP programs and services.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), other legislation, and the efforts of many disability organizations have begun to improve accessibility in buildings, increase access to education, open employment opportunities, and develop realistic portrayals of persons with disabilities.
However, more progress needs to be made. Many people still view persons with disabilities as individuals to be pitied, feared, or ignored. These attitudes may arise from discomfort with individuals who are perceived to be different or simply from a lack of information. UCP hopes you will review these suggestions on how to relate and communicate with and about people with disabilities and implement it in your interactions with and about people with disabilities.
