Due to the negative social, physical and financial repercussions presented to persons with disabilities(PwD) and their families, it is vital that their needs and requirements are clearly known and addressed in communities. To meet this goal, we assessed perceptions of PwD in the Kamand region. We set out to understand the limitations that are faced by PwD and their families, and we determined the resources available to support PwD. By accomplishing these objectives, we hoped to clarify standards for accessibility in Kamand Valley and to promote greater understanding and independence to those affected by disability.
