People with disability do not need our pity. They need our help and understanding. Just because they are disabled or specially-able, does not mean that they cannot do anything. It means they can still do things, even if differently. Take driving, for example. If you are the parent or the caregiver of a disabled person, it would mean a lot to you if you can move your child around with as much dignity as possible. It would mean a lot more if he learns to drive himself with a specially-designed vehicle. And that is where NMEDA serves a great purpose. They are an association of that advocates safe driving and equipments for disabled people. Their dealers and members adhere to the Assurance Program or QAP. QAP is the accreditation program for the mobility equipment industry and it means that a member dealer who is QAP accredited follows guidelines and recommended practices for the well-being of people with disability. So if you need to have a vehicle fitted for the use of your disabled family members or relatives, be sure to look for a NMEDA qualified dealer who can assist you in your area. It will never do to buy second hand vehicles that are not specifically designed for an individual because it is not tailor-fit for his needs and abilities. Remeber, a NMEDA dealer can help get your loved ones gain his independence back by giving him the chance to drive on his own or be moved around with dignity.
