Today is International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD).  Established by the UN, IDPD has been commemorated since 1992 to “promote awareness and mobilize support for critical issues relating to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in society and development.”  The theme for 2015 is that inclusion matters – people of all abilities should have access and empowerment.  It is estimated that there are one billion people living with disabilities worldwide; improving access for those individuals can create real opportunities.
