Individual Beat 9/24/16

The topic I have chosen to do my beat on is the daily life of those who have disabilities living in Italy, specifically in Reggio Emilia, and the amount of access they have to resources to help them. I am also going to compare the amount of resources individuals have here in Reggio Emilia to California, since I am from there. I choose this beat because this topic relates to my major and relates to the job I want to have in my future. I also chose this because I feel like more people need to be educated about this topic, and that more needs to be done in order to help those with disabilities. Research shows that one billion people experience some form of disability, and 110–190 million people experience significant disabilities, which is why this is a topic that will connect with people not only locally but globally as well (World Health Organization.)
