Attitudes toward wheelchair users are the focus of the third of five booklets on attitudinal barriers toward disabled persons. Five myths (such as that people using wheelchairs cannot enjoy sex) are examined and common negative attitudes are portrayed in five scenes. The booklet concludes with suggestions for dealing with a wheelchair user (such as not automatically holding on to a person's wheelchair) and for general advocacy (such as encouraging the community to make curb cuts in the sidewalks).
