A woman who uses a wheelchair is accompanied by her service dog.

A member of That Uppity Theatre Company's The DisAbility Project uses a service dog to help her with basic tasks. Service dogs can be trained to turn lights on and off, to alert help if necessary, or help his or her owner navigate among many other tasks.
