Have attitudes to disability changed?

David Weir David Weir won four gold medals at the London Paralympics

Declaring the 2012 Paralympics closed in September International Paralympic Committee president, Sir Philip Craven, said: "These Games have changed us all forever."

Now, the BBC wants to gauge how far that is true in the UK - have attitudes to disability really altered?

Some 2.7 million tickets were sold for the Paralympic Games and the amount of media and television coverage was unprecedented.

British stars of the Olympics and Paralympics celebrated their success together during a victory parade through the streets of London, cheered on by thousands.
