Experience of people with mobility impairments

Explorations of the phenomenal and practical experience of people with mobility impairments. A paraplegic student has recorded a journal of her experiences over several months. In addition, daily activities have been videotaped to document some of the barriers that can be invisible to those without a motor impairment. Additionally, a second video diary was recorded by another student who spent several days in a wheel chair. The journal and videotapes are being analyzed and edited to provide a glimpse into the lived experiences of a person with mobility impairments.
