Good question Sandra!!

In Spain we are changing the world that people use.
We have been using disabled people or handicapped. But these words have bad
means. They are not disable people!! is the society that is not accesible
for them!!

Who is the disabled people in a dark room?? the blind or the not blind??
Why the not blind is not disabled in this society?? becaouse we have adapted
the room with a light.

We are now changing to the word "functional diversity". We say people with
funcional diverity in visuals, or mobility, or cognitive, or auditive.
But yet most people use the older terminology.
