ABSTRACT

This chapter examines the nature and often dire consequences of unreliable and undependable systems of disability accommodations for disabled people. Drawing upon experiences of what it is like for many of us to live with a disability, it considers how these systems affect our lives and suggests how systems can be improved and be made more dependable. It then argues that this critical analysis can be useful in explaining and improving other kinds of undependable systems that affect many non-disabled people.
