“Can Do“ Travel Site Helps People With Disabilities
People with handicaps can now plan their trips while exploring a broad range of travel opportunities at i-can-travel.com.
The site is designed to serve a huge and growing American market. According to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau figures, 51.2 million people report some level of disability and for 32.5 million of them the disability was considered severe.* This number is only likely to rise as the U.S. population ages.
But the numbers alone don’t explain the impetus of the new site. Marlene Wechselblatt, who has MS and is wheelchair-bound, put it this way: “There’s a common belief that people with disabilities can’t do very much, but we know that’s simply not true. We designed this new site to promote creative thinking, expand travel options and live as free from our disabilities as possible. We hope others will join us on the journey, be optimistic, and above all, laugh at the joys and challenges of their trip.”

Note: The report defines a person as having a disability if they have difficulty performing a specific activity such as seeing, hearing, bathing or doing light housework, or had a specified condition, such as Alzheimer’s disease or autism. People are considered to have a severe disability if they are completely unable to perform one or more of these tasks or activities, need personal assistance or have one of the severe conditions described in the report.
