Seems like a very good idea. I hope it doesn’t end up being used by others than those for whom it is intended.
It is astonishing that it is the first one isnt it? Our so called advanced liberal society and especially our self-righteous universities lecture us all on equality but always leave people with disabilities last on the list of special interest groups.
