Join the crowd, Be +: Most of us have had disabilities at one time or another. Certain disabilities are more altering for ourselves, and for the people that we come in contact with. I am now on partial disability for a heart attack. First, get a handle on your own preconceptions of what your disability is doing to you (physically, emotionally, socially), and then think about what baggage others bring along into play.

Look within: It probably matters more how you look at yourself if you have a disability. There are literally millions of people who carry on normal lives with a disability. There will always be some people who feel uncomfortable around people with disabilities but that is their problem, not yours. Don't worry about what other people think; difficult to change others.

Too broad a topic: Are you asking about recent or past changes made by the Americans with Disabilities Act ? We can't possibly cover this in 400 characters or less. For a good review see: https://adata.org/learn-about-ada
