There has been a significant transition in the American workplace within the last five years for the physically disabled employee. In the past, those with disabilities were viewed as a liability in the work environment especially those who were in wheelchairs. Whether it was due to a newly acquired injury or a congenital disability, not only did a disabled person have to adjust to their disability, but also their workplace accessibility and accommodations. People in wheelchairs were perceived to be too dependent and thus, unproductive or lacked efficiency.
