and finding care for special needs can be a huge challenge when
you travel... but it doesn't have to be. With the help of the Web, you can easily find airports, cruises, hotels, and tourists attractions,catering to the needs of the those with disabilities most anywhere you go.
In fact, in the United States, it's the law. The passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990 put the spotlight on the needs of the disabled, at work and on the road.
Many countries have since followed suit -- in Canada, Australia and Asia, and the European Union. Around the world, today tour operators and travel agents for the disabled can arrange complete packages of fully-vetted accommodations, transportation and "wheelchair-friendly" attractions.
