Did the Paralympics change people's attitudes?

  • 26 July 2013

The London 2012 Paralympics took the nation by storm and more people watched it on TV than ever before.

But the Games weren't just about sporting achievement, they were also about attitudes too.

The Paralympics were "more inspiring" for kids than the Olympics, according to a survey commissioned by Newsround.

And nearly seven in 10 of those asked said that the Paralympics had changed the way they view disabled people.

Check out Martin's report in which he visits a club where able-bodied and disabled kids try out sports together to see if the Paralympics inspired them.

And he chats to Paralympian David Weir about how the Games changed attitudes towards disability.
