    A barrier is anything that prevents a person with a disability from fully participating in all aspects of society because of his or her disability. A barrier can be physical or due to architectural design. Sometimes the way we communicate causes barriers, as can attitude, technology and policies. Accessibility planning helps prevent, identify and remove those barriers.
