Abstract

The apparent benefit of neighborhood walkability suggests that it may be an important health-related consideration in the lives of everyday people. Most of the elements in the walkability index reflect components in the environment, so these may be relevant across the continuum of impairments, meaning that walkable neighborhoods themselves may have positive impact on the daily lives of people with physical or intellectual disabilities.
