Sit-skiing, hand-cycling, and adaptive sailing- the state is teeming with opportunities for disabled Vermonters to stay active and enjoy an outdoor lifestyle. But just how accessible is the state on a day-to-day basis? Say, at the grocery store, or town hall? We explore the challenges faced by and opportunities offered to disabled Vermonters. Our guests include Sarah Launderville of the Vermont Center for Independent Living, and Patrick Standen, the director of the Northeast Disabled Athletes Association.
