A recent blog post on a website about Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease — a degenerative group of inherited disorders that cause nerve damage — touched on an interesting point about the need for disability education.

Its author, Young Lee, writes about an “inaccurate short-term rental listing” that stated it was accessible for people in wheelchairs. It was not.

“I can’t deny that the short-term rental industry has changed the way many travel. And I’m realizing that, partly because it’s largely unregulated, the industry leaves many disabled folks behind,” notes Lee.

It’s an anecdotal, informal look at a problem that vexes many people using wheelchairs, and quick to skim.
